did anyone make a tree saw attachment for a gravely walk behind?

have some brush to clear and this seems to make sense for me. brush is too big for small tractor and bush hog. a lot of stooping with a chain saw.

Gee, I know where a walk behind Gravely with the roto plow , cultivator, rotory mower is located . I can remember doing some rod line clearing of heavy weeds & brush at his oil leases for him when I was a teenager. But I can not be sure of whether it was a sickle bar or saw blade attachment he had put on the Gravely .It was definitely a neat set-up back then . I will make a note to try getting in contact with the son because that sweet ole guy past away yrs ago . He was very rich , but worked very hard for his money . Rhe man was very kind to my X & I in many wats . But he also had a tuff / ruling shell to crack at timrs .If I c an possibly get it & if the tractor itself is shot , maybe we can get a deal going . But don't get your hopes up too high or too quickly until I makr contact . If you are interested & this sounds good to you . Send me your email address & I'll let you know his answer ASAP . Rhe son is willing to part with some things , but his Mother is still living & definitely rules that roost . How do I know this ? Well when he was a small boy , my X wife was their house cleaner & baby sitter of the son .So I often was around there either clearing brush or mowing the yard . The boy had a very large Lionel train layout that we played with when possible . Well the son is around 48 by now , & I asked him about all that layout & train stuff . I couldn't believe it when he said he'd give it all to me . So we met at his Moms house so I could pick it all up . Boy Mom about blew a plug when he told her what we was doing there . Needless to say , I will have to wait to see if she out lives me or not. TeeHee ! God bless , Ken

Gravely made both circular saw and chainsaw attachments.
The chainsaw used a chain size that hasn't been manufactured for at least 30 years. The circular saw attachment was basically a 30 mower with a saw blade rather than a mower blade. The early models didn't have any guard. Later models had a guard that looked like a cut off 30" mower deck.

Both look scary as heck to use. I think that both were made for cutting trees---not brush.

Yes, Gravely had a 30" saw attachment. Went on the drive unit for the 30" mower. I don't see why they wouldn't work for cutting brush. Scary? All in the eye of the beholder. I've also cut a LOT of brush with the sickle bar. Geared wheels are a big help, need to go slow.
