I'll bet that the good doctor was thrilled with your rapid progress.
Seeing the old aerator is a first for me. Looks like it's adjustable via the handle on the right side?
I also noticed the green hood on the one tractor. It also looks like yellow (postal) where the decal used to be. Could it be from a postal tractor that was then turned over to the parks service, and painted green after masking the decal?
Don't let Lindey know about 5tractorguy and me Nice delivery - getting another set of GRWs is always nice but that aerator is pretty neat. Interesting design.
I won't! She'd be mad that you guys won't come before New Years to haul some of these off.
Well, I always have that week of Christmas Vacation coming up.......hmmmmm
I have a whole month! Maybe I can do continuous laps in the truck from Illinois to Maryland? That should relieve Ron's G.A.S. in a jiffy.
I didn't even know that Gravely used galvanized hoods for a little while. I've finally accepted that I may never know every production change that occurred on these machines.
Wait till you try to collect one of every year and type Model L and C. Good excuse for having more than one of every year. See list below.
Ron, your 55 looks only a little better than my 55. Is it an L or a LI like mine?
