OK, here's a rare "Ronnie Recker" attachment. It's made for a 800/8000 but this one is modified (poorly) for a 20G.
Hey be gentle with that little fella! It's had a hard life and tell it I'll come visit it soon!

I'll go get some pictures of some of mine.. are we sticking to 2 wheel or 4 wheel or ALL?!

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.

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.

That is just not right. NO GRAVELY should be left like that
No Machine should be stripped and just left open to the elements they removed the air cleaner!!!, let alone such a young one .

Not really Gravely specific - and would actually work a lot better on a four wheel tractor - but here's a picture I posted before of the log hauler my Dad built:



I've also got a homemade blade and rear weight bucket one of the previous owners made for my 8163 but don't have good photos handy.
