The Little Gravely that COULD!

The Little Gravely that COULD!

My main Gravely Tractor is undergoing transmission work at the moment.  So last night I pulled out my back up tractor to do some snow blowing.  This tractor is the antique Model Li that I featured in THIS blog post.  And so because of the genius of the Gravely design all the attachments are interchangeable across several years of two wheel tractor models.  That means I can put the snow blower on this little guy!  And let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised with just how hard this little Gravely can work!  Even at less horsepower, 6.6 horse as opposed to 8 horse on my main tractor, this tractor was really doing a good job and holding it's own!  Of course my neighbor showed up with his Commercial 12, a giant of a tractor, using the same blower attachment.  It is a sort of  "Gravely Club" after all!

Southernmost Maine Holds Last Views of Foliage Color

Central and southernmost Maine are the best locations to see colorful foliage through the weekend, according to the final 2011 fall foliage report from the Maine Department of Conservation (MDOC).

Maine Forest Service and state park rangers are reporting past peak leaf color in each of the state's seven tracking zones, but pockets of remarkable color can still be seen in the Kennebec Valley region along Route 201 and in Cumberland and York counties in southern Maine.
