This is a Gravely powered Estate Tractor. It was made by the Gresham Machine Works in Kansas City, MO in 1956. It is basically an aftermarket conversion to make a Gravely into a riding tractor. As I understand, they were only made one year.

Just goes to show you can learn something every day! Never heard of such an animal. That's the great part of this hobby, always something new to me.

That's a great looking tractor! Thanks for sharing the pictures. I've never seen, or heard of, one either. Maybe you could post some more pictures of it sometime.

Thanks for the interest guys! I don't know much more about the tractor. There is usually only one at the national Gravely meet {Mow-In} every year but that meet is always out east and too far for me to attend. I've not seen another in person, only pictures in the Gravely Gazette. I have a photocopy of an original brochure for this tractor and it shows the attachments for the Estate Tractor. The Gravely Rotary Plow fits under the belly. Since the right front wheel would be in the PREVIOUS furrow, it is adjustable. The right front axle is longer and has three settings to get that tire centered in the furrow. There was a dump box that mounted on the front with one pin for easy on/off and when folded over in the dump position, it was a light duty grading blade. Gresham also made a 42" three bladed rotary mower deck for the tractor.
