There are few things keeping me from any part of that tractor.

1 - It is just too far. 300 miles is just too far. 10 hrs minimum round trip.
2 - I have no place to store the sulky. They just take up too much room.
3 - I have too many cultivators and plows as it is.
4 - I have no use for the SC. I traded one for a broom 2 weeks ago. I am burned out on the Gravely engine.
5 - I have too many 30" decks

I have a feeling the patient is going to get worse before he gets better.

I concur Dr. Don. However, I'm not too concerned. Patients with long term Gravely Acquisition Syndrome often are afflicted with Frequent Attachment Redundancy Trauma Syndrome, a condition identified with "I have too many A" or "I have too many B". It's simply a part of Gravely life. If the patient was saying "I have too many Gravelys". I would be very concerned.

The condition can be easily treaded with controlled doses of dexo-ebay-hydracaine or chorta-craigs-list-sellicelium. Of course the preferred and most effective treatment is loadus-trailiarus-mow-in-and-sell-stuffus, but this treatment can be cost (and distance) prohibitive to many patients.

As I stated, I'm not too concerned at this point. After all, it's very common for patients with G.A.S to have F.A.R.T.S. as well.

:biglaugh: That also leads to Selling More Equipment Listed Later Syndrome Dr. Ron. You can find that when the patient has a listing and does not put all the items in because they think they will need them for spares. After a while, they list those items too. That is S.M.E.L.L.S. and goes with the G.A.S and F.A.R.T.S. which many have.

RE: Homstead: I was stationed at Navsecgruacty, Homestead in '62.
Nice little base, had 'open kitchen' on weekends for those in the barracks.
Remember walking causeways between swamps to Homestead to get a piece of pecan pie ala mode at a small snack bar!

You guys need some BEANO:
Buy Equipment All Not Operational and there'll be no time to have G.A.S. or F.A.R.T.S:thThumbsU

Seems like non-operational is all I have bought the past several years. The 24G was the exception.

I've had B.E.A.N.O., but still have G.A.S., F.A.R.T.S. and and what appears to be a new strain of S.M.E.L.L. I bought an extra dozer plow AFTER selling an extra dozer plow. Is there any hope?

Maybe I should just pick up 2 Gravelys, and call Dr.s Ron, or Don in the morning.

Do these belong to the Always New or Used System collectors of Gravely? This whole thread seems to eminate from that area!


:sorry1: Just had to do it!
