This is as good as they come. This mower was only used on a 1/2 acre lawn that was all st. It was garage kept and only has 375 hours of use. Take a look at the photo gallery and see how well kept this mower was. The tractor paint is original. The only retouching we did was on the mower deck. Unit was totaly serviced and all checked and replaced as needed. The last 2 pictures in my photo gallery are pinhole camera pictures of the cylinder bores. Note the hatch marks in the cylinder which indicate zero wear in the cylinders. The engine is the kohler 18hp magnum which we have seen up to 4000 hours before a rebuild. They are without question the best engine kohler ever built and in our opinion the best gas engine model series bar none. The gravely tractor (since 1916) was the most bullet proof 4 wheel tractor on the marcket. It is all gear direct drive (no belts) shaft drive to the mower deck. The only belt is on the mower deck and connects the 3 cast iron spindles. The 8 speed transmission with oil bath pto clutch is cast iron and machined gears. Any questions will be gladly answered. He who gets this mower is truly blessed indeed.
