The newer two wheelers? Oh you, they were tanks. Still, High quality, but more feachers. LOTS more money though.Originally posted by MowHoward2210
I hear they don't make the old Gravely 2 wheel tractors anymore.
Were the newer ones as rugged as the old ones like you have, Paul?
I just posted a few in the "shade tree" fourm under the "how old is old" topic. I will try to get some new ones this weekend. Those were from when I got them.Originally posted by MowHoward2210
Do you have any pics of your Gravely L's?
Prettymuch universal. They did make some changes in, I think, the early 80's. There were also adapters to mak the newer,80's plus] fit the older tractors.Originally posted by MowHoward2210
Thanks, I missed that thread somehow. Might look into buying an old one sometime. Are the attachments hard to find for the older models, or did they stay universal all those years?
LOL Not sure the wife would think that way.Originally posted by sixchows

Hello to all in Gravely Land
My brother bought a Gravely 4 wheel riding tractor about 5 years
ago at a open house sale. The guy who sold it said he was the original
owner and purchased it in the 70’s. The only attachment he had for it
was the deck, but it was crushed when run over by a truck delivering
gravel to this guy’s house. This happened about 5 years before the sale
and the tractor just sat in his shed.
Well my brother wound up buying it with no attachments, took it home
and called me. We had it running by the end of the day and he put it
away in his shed where it has sat for the last 5 years.
So this poor thing has been laying around for 10 years without a mission.
It’s red and if I recall it is a model 812 or 816 with a 2 cyl Onan, hydraulic
lift and gear trans.
I have been thinking about getting it going again, but I understand that
Gravely no longer makes garden tractors. I could probably get parts for
the Onan, but it’s the rest of the tractor that worries me.
Can you still get parts for these things ?
