Dang "T" , that is quite a haul . those machines are impressive for 7.5 HP ( studebaker ) . i used mine for 20+ (?) years , great for getting under stuff . They will flat pin you against a tree in reverse if not careful . I regret selling mine , but it went to a father/son who was going to restore it together . Cool find " T "
, coppersmythe.............PS: the only thing Gravely should have offered and did'nt was a swinging blade like a bushog .

Had to sell a couple things to make this deal happen. Didn’t want to let this one pass. I think I can sell off most of it and that way I won’t have much in what I keep. She also has a Cub tractor and a propane Farmall 656. 656 is pretty nice, cub has seen its better days. Also has a Bentley(husband was in process of tearing down to restore) and a Rolls Royce. Among other things.

Yep, a Gravely can be a booger if you are not careful. Know what you mean about reverse, Val. And handlebar can get you where you don’t want to be got if you hit a dip while turning at the same time. Lol

Yell at me Thomas if you need anything while working on them. Guy here about a mile from me is known all over the USA for his Gravely parts and service.

Not sure but maybe.... The very popular Terramite mini backhoe is made in that area not far from me. Gravely tractors are very common here and seen everywhere you look in both the walk behind type and riders. Ran across an older friend last year and noticed half of his index finger was gone. Asked him what happened and he told me the story of how it was lost to a Gravely walk behind. I laughed showing him mine I had lost same way but had been sewn back on.

Thanks, Yogie! Just so happens I need a quick hitch adapter. It’s the part that goes between the tiller and tractor in this pic

That was a nice covey of Gravely's you got into. Was it an auction or did you buy from an individual?

From an individual. Her husband died a few years ago. She didn’t advertise the stuff she had(has). It was just word of mouth. She wanted to feel comfortable about the people she let come out. We had mutual friends.

Went out and checked the tag on the old 1967 I've owned for years. Dunbar W. Va. I never had any close calls with my hands but...... I'll leave it at that. They are a work horse but I like my cubs better.

I have a Gravely 432 Commercial garden tractor that I'm looking for a manual for.
Any ideas?
