Thats not a bad price. They have a matching loader and backhoe for it. I believe NH is still offering 0% finance. DROOL-DROOL-DROOL... :D :D

Man I had two gravley's even rebuilt one of the hydrostatic trans. what a nightmare that was with the tapered clutch..
I love my kubota. took the power angle curtis front blade off and put bucket on ,rear scraper blade off and put stone rake on to help SIL find stones. If it just stopped raining maybe they would keep poping up. We just cleared about 60 Big trees for a "lawn"

The grandaughter had her fairy outfit on when she was ready to drive the D4...

My 4-y-o has the same Wand! Must be a Walmart special.

Our house was surrounded by trees, when we bought this place. Several have already fell on the house, on the car, on the powerlines, so decided to start clearing. Went out and got the NH TC33DH with the backhoe and FEL, and started clearing. That was 4 years ago. Now have a area cleared for a 160 x 80 ft garden. Just need to get a 6' or 7' landscaping rake, a 3P.H. mounted roto-tiller, and a post-hole digger for the fence.

:eek2: Holy crapper ......... close to what I paid for the truck! I'll have to keep playing the lottery.....




That Gravely takes the same oil filter as a Ford 302! :lol: Nice unit -- they don't build anything like they used to. I'd rather be sitting when plowing though!

Nope, she's still doing fine but needs a new fan belt before I start using it hard. Last thing I want is to flip a belt that I can't see hand burn the valves out of the old Indian design 6.6 HP. The one in the youtube video is in the middle of the two L s I've owned. The featured Gravely was almost like the one I owned, a pull-start LI circa '58 and my current one is a '63 L8 dual speed axle, electric start. It'll do just about anything you can stand being the rear wheels on :shock: That's the trouble - one shoulder was rebuilt four years ago :roll: There's a lot of implements for the old Gravely L's . I've got a list of stuff: 1 ton dump cart w/roller rest, 30" brush hog w/finish blades, 4' plow like in the video, dog-eater snow cannon, rotary plow and cultivator, tool holder w/harrow tines, shredder-grinder, dirt scoop (like a mini loader),dual wheels, a reel mower and a sulky. With a little care it will all outlast me and I've been using this stuff for nearly thirty years. They built stuff back it the day.

PC 12 47-E, the neighbor has a B series with a loader/backhoe that I think is around 28 hp. I've been eying that hoping they'll sell it sometime soon. Another neighbor has the BX-24. Sweet little machine that can get around in the woods if it isn't too rocky. Not much clearance under there on the BX.

I have a Craftsman rear tine tiller, reverse rotation. Sure is a big difference using it compared to the front-tine tillers. :o

Dave, I should have taken you up to our local dealer. I think he has several used Kubotas for sale. Let me know when your serious about looking.

Abuot the tiller:
I just found a used Land Pride reverse-tine tiller for my TC33DH. Looks like they want $1800 for this RTR2562. Anyone know if thats a fair price for a 1997 model? It is the 25 series (heavy duty) so I don't mind paying a little extra. I think it would sell for $4000 brand new, not sure.
