The 260/272 diesel is out in February. It was shown at the GIE show with rave reviews (and some running over fences by a driver or 2).

We needed to slow it down from 15+mph to make it a little safer....it is quite a beast. 'course it could just be driver error.

The Gladiator is the Ariens/Gravely category manager for ride-on product. You may wish to correspond w/him to get more detail....or when I am back from vacation I will share what I learn.
