New Tractor?

Filed under:General — eric @ 4:15 am

With any luck, tonight I’ll be the owner of a 1976 Gravely Tractor, with optional seat and mower/brush cutter. These tried-and-true walk-behind tractors are ideal for land like ours. The tractors themselves aren’t easy to buy, because owners tend to hold on to them for life, but I found one on ebay that’s within a three hour drive away. And while the tractors themselves may be hard to buy, the attachments and parts are plentiful.

UPDATE: No luck. As happens all so often on ebay, a dealer swept in at the last moment and snapped it up. I was there, hitting refresh like a madman up to the end, and with 4 seconds to go, he beat my price. I tried to type in a higher number (it was still below value), but couldn’t get it done.


  1. Be sure to pick up the optional drink holder to go
    along with the optional seat should you want to
    have a nice cold bevy whilst plowing the fields.

  2. How much did it go for?

  3. Grrrr. It makes me so mad when people do that on ebay, especially when it’s something like that–rare and close by. You know, there’s software that people use to slam like that. I wish I could remember the name. :)
