collector of the old
Hey guys I just figured we could have some fun and try to get a picture of every gravely attachment. Rare ones, home made ones, one off ones, any and every attachment :greendr:
Hey be gentle with that little fella! It's had a hard life and tell it I'll come visit it soon!OK, here's a rare "Ronnie Recker" attachment. It's made for a 800/8000 but this one is modified (poorly) for a 20G.
Having worked with experimental undercutters, even ones that use hydraulics drives are known to have problems. A potato digger works about the best at lifting sod. And those take power.There was a sod cutter that my father designed. It was a bar that attached to the sulky. As you rode along that bar was supposed to slice the ground below the roots of the grass.
It was a total failure. My father didn't take into account that dirt is difficult to slice through especially when the cutting bar is 24" in length. He also didn't take into account that the vertical part would have to slice through the sod. If it had multiple oscillating cutter bars and was driven from the front then it would have had 1/2 a chance of working.
