I am looking at the Gravely Pro-Turn 148. My local dealer does not have them (2010 Models) in stock yet. I am unclear on a few features of this mower and want to check with you guys.

1. The dealer (and web site) says it will come in with a new 24 HP Kawasaki "FX" series motor. Is the "FX" series motor any good, where does it fit in the line up of Kawasaki motors (good, better,best)?

2. Dealer states that the 2010 model has a new 2-piece frame (rubber cushions), smoother to operate hydraulics and ZT-3400 trasnsaxles. Can anyone confirm the changes and comment on them being a improvement?.

3. Does anyone have this mower yet? If so whats you impression?

4. Overall, what about the quality of Gravely?

5. Price quote of approx $6,400.

Thanks,

Bob

My dealer got in a Pro-Turn 260, and a 266 a couple of weeks ago, and has already sold the 260. I believe the main difference is larger transaxles and more hp engines in the 200 series.

I looked at the 260, but didn't operate it, but ended up buying a Pro-Master diesel because tHe Pro-Turn doesn't offer a power deck lift. Nice looking mower. There is an informative video on Youtube on the Gravey Channel about the 200 series.

I bought a 2010 Pro Turn 148 a couple of weeks ago. I went in to the dealer to look at the Toro's but came out with a Gravely. I have not gotten the chance to put many hours on it yet, but so far so good. Go to Kawasaki's website and look at the FX series engine details. It appears to be a step up from the FH series. This mower is built like a tank. Everything is heavy guage steel. As for the 3400 transaxles, they operate very, very smoothly. I am under the impression that they are heavier duty than the 2800 transaxles that most companies use. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the help. Does the $6,400 price sound about right?

I think there is still a little room for negotiating. I got a really good price from my dealer because they just started selling Gravely. He said that the next 148 that he sells, he will get $6200 for it.

Just an FYI we paid $6500 for our 160Z.


You are going to love that machine. The X-Factor deck is simply amazing.
