The 810 appears to be a rollover victim.

Would it make a difference if the name Gravely wasnt on the wagon ? Looks to me that a guy just loves Gravelys, it pretty cool looking to me. Ive had stickers sitting around for so long I'd be dieing to find something to put them on. Face it if a sticker isnt stuck to anything it aint doing its job.

Probably. In all seriousness, there's absolutely nothing wrong with it - the cart or the gravely sticker on it. It just struck me the same way when I see a honda civic going down the road with $15k of bling thrown at it. Maybe it was just small welding project and the sticker was laying there - nothing wrong with that. But given how much effort (look at that paint!) was put into building a cart around a wheelbarrow box, it reminds me of the old saying:

"You can't polish a turd"

LOL, I know exactly what you mean. It looks like someone who is a tinkerer just ran out of projects and thought "what the heck" kinda huh? Its something else thats for sure.

I have an 812 rollover victim. What is it about that tractor that says "rollover victim"?

I give him points for creativity. Practicality is another matter :)

Why put it up so high? If I were going to build something like that, I'd put the bucket down right close to the axle. Then position it so that when you tip it back, the lip of the bucket is pretty close to flat on the ground. That'd make loading and unloading easy. The way he's got it, somebody's got to lift shovelfuls of stuff up a couple feet. My back protests at that kind of work these days :)

I think it's kind of neat in a way. Cut some extruded steel sheet to run around the top and it becomes a "Gravely" mobile barbeque grill. Once the ashes have cooled, back it up to the mulch pile, and dump them. Or how about loading it with ice, and "beverages"? Perfect for outdoor get togethers, Mow Ins, etc.:tango_face_wink:

You could use it to haul a big water melon.
Its close to you Ron. I think you should buy it to put in your collection. It could then be officially added as an after market attachment to the long list of gravely attachments. You could dump two bags of ice and a twelve pack (maybe even a case?) in it.

Your collection is begging for it. Pick up the phone - give 'em a call...

I won't even tell anyone you bought it.

You just gave me the idea I needed for the July 4th parade this year! I'll say its the "support wagon" for the poor adults walking in the heat! :tango_face_grin:

The beer idea is good, but I can't reach that far back.

Maybe if I were to cut a tight turn.....
