Was offered a deal for a 2006 slightly faded model Gravely 36 hydro including
sulky. THe dealer said someone bought it and only used it a few days and it scared em cause they were used to a Z. I don't know how it could scare em but then again, I've never used a 36in wb. He's asking $3000, it would normally be about $4200. Should I go with that or go with Scag, belt driven 36wb w/ sulky for $3250 that would be brand new?

And if anyone can tell me how Gravely compares to scag. I see more people using Scag, but are they about the same or? And what about Ferris?

I have both and like the gravely more. You will be happy you took hydro over belt drive.

Do you have a lesco store near by? If so you should look at their mowers. I love mine.

I'd get the Hydro your hands will love it,and better resale if you decide to sell.

Well, I plan to look at the mowers and hopefully someone there will let me demo them so I can get a feel to see which I like better. I'm sure I'd like the hydro better, if it's as easy to use as folks are saying on here. But I'm a bit susupicious about the 2006 model and how the guy returned it cause he was "scared" of it. I'll just see for myself. I sure wish I had a buddy who's a vet lco who could come with me. This purchase, probably over 3 grand is really a major purchase for me, since I have so many other bills now.

So u guys think the Gravely is the better deal huh.

I agree. You've been going on and on about buying a mower for quite a while now. You surely have obtained enough advice and info to make an informed decision...

Buy the hydro, you won't be sorry. Scag is a better brand imo, but the hydro outweighs belts regarless of brand.

THanks guy! I'll see if they still have the Hydro. If not, I may have to go with a belt drive scag. I could always upgrade next year if I increase my customers considerably. We all have to start somewhere. I like the look of Scag better; red is so played out, I dig orange ( maybe I'm getting too personal here ).:laugh:
