I have mentioned rotary plowing before,, and several people asked for a video,,
yesterday I plowed the garden, so, I videoed some of the action.

The tractor is a 1992 Gravely, with an eight horsepower Kohler engine.
The engine is running about 2,000 RPM's, so it might be making 5 HP,,,,

Here are a couple pics of the machine,,,

A Gravely and rotary plow is an awesome machine. If anyone is looking for a rotary plow, I have one that's available as my Gravely croaked and I just don't have time to rebuild it. I wish I did have time as there is nothing else that can do quite the same things. . .

Hard to beat a Gravely and a rotary plow. Back in college I had an old Gravely L with a rotary plow and gear reduction wheels. Slow, but unstoppable!! Plowed a lot of gardens to help pay for expenses back then.

Love the sound that the old "L" engines made, but I sure like the reliability of the Kohler's on my current Gravely's.

GREAT video!!
