I saw this "to good to be true" deal on eBay. It was for a V plow that fits rider tractors. It listed Gravelys as the tractors it would fit, so I ordered one. Here's a picture of it installed. I guess I should have guessed when they said "buy one, get one free".

Are you serious? That looks like it would fit better on one of those plastic kid "barbie jeeps". I mean, was it really sold as a Gravely attachment?

I'm sorry Ron, but...:sidelaugh:sidelaugh:sidelaugh
At least you'll enjoy having some extra seat time when plowing your driveway.

Is it possible that it's supposed to be a kind of garden furrowing plow?

As tough as the all metal Tonka trucks were, my son wore one out. The holes in the frame for the axles turned into slots and then the body was resting on the wheels. We got him another truck. I had never even heard of a Tonka truck wearing out before that.

He loved that truck. He would push it all over the house every day for what seemed like 2 years. The second truck was well on its way to being worn out when he finally outgrew it.

I still have mine from the late 1950's-early '60s.

At the time, Tonka was starting to introduce plastic toys. I insisted on metal toys. I had to hunt around for that second truck and did find it at K-Mart. The plastic toys just would not hold up to the kind of use that the boys would give it.

Ron, did you actually receive two plows ("for the price of one")? If so, you could make up a weldment that would slip over your liftable hitch, and be secured via clevis pins (like the rear tiller). You could run the two plows in tandem for planting. Otherwise, you could use the one plow. Either way, it would probably make planting faster (or at least more fun), running furrows, than digging holes for each vegtable plant.

This could be a neat attachment to have, at least to me. Plus another entry in "every Gravely attachment known to man".

I have no idea what they are. They were in a load of Gravely stuff, but are not Gravely. The PO had no idea what they were either. They are not very heavy duty. Any theory's are welcome.

I found this pic. It reminded me of my last post. They would'nt need to be as heavy duty as they would'nt be used for plowing virgin soil (although if they were Gravely, they would have been heavy duty anyway).
I would imagine that they would be used to furrow already prepared (softened) soil so that seeds, or plants could then be dropped in, and covered over. Ofcourse, I could also be completely wrong.
