I believe this was introduced in 2005 or 2006. Made for Gravely by Towsley's. The box and custom foam container both look nearly perfect, with a few small nicks on the end corners.The regular model-L diecast was limited to 2000 units, this one is 20X more rare! This one is all chromed out, limited to 100 units, originally intended as gifts for Ariens corporate brass and the like. I looked for info on this over the years and could find nothing. All the remaining description listed below is standard text description for the standard model-L.
The one being offered here is the original super rare chrome version , not the painted version, all other details are the same. This model is an outstanding replica of the small vintage walk behind self propelled tractor known as the Model-L, with a sickle bar mowing attachment mounted to the front. This is our last model-L. The handles feature simulated rubber grips with fully functioning side mounted levers operating wire controlled forward/reverse and throttle controls located on the engine. The fully replicated 6.6 hp gasoline engine features a real belt drive with rotating cooling fan behind the protective grill.
It is amazing that turning the main pulley wheel actually operates the fan and is another example of the amazing level of detail on this model. The simulated sediment fuel filter is also reproduced below the fuel tank while the engine cover can be lifted to reveal the engine details within.
The AC oil filter, Zenith carburetor, magneto and oil bath air cleaner are all fully reproduced inside the engine compartment, which is complete with the single spark plug fitted to the top of the engine manifold The freely rotating wheels are fitted with authentic rubber tires complete with intricate tread pattern while the wheel hubs have a six spoke ribbed pattern with bolt head detailing. The sickle bar cutting head is a one piece casting with tooth, cutter bar and bolt detail all present. Also included is a complete miniature replica instruction manual approx. 30 pages as well as a Gravely hat clip with golf ball marker.
Model Dimensions: Length: 7" / 178mm Width: 3.5" / 89mm Height: 3.185 / 81mm Weight: 0.4 lbs / 0.18 kg (unboxed weight). Thank you for looking and please check out our other listings.
