I have a Gravely L that was my Grandfathers. Similar to this one (generic 'net picture).
I use it as a bushhog, clearing thickets and shooting lanes. 30" mower deck. I've used it with a 48" finish mower, snowblower, plow blade, and rotary plow/tiller. It can be a tough machine to control, but is near unstoppable. It can climb any slope or side slope. Mine has dual turf tires, but with chains or Ag tires you have to be careful of wheelies!
Bushhogging, it will climb over a 4" pine tree and spit out toothpics.

No lawyer style safety controls, so it can pin you down and beat you up if you do anything stupid. I've got some good bruises where the handlebar kicked and got me in the leg!

Watch Craigslist for a used one. I've seen $300 to about $900 for one set up like the picture.
