It is just like last years, only they went from a 32" deck, up to a 34" deck. This allows them to use the same deck on the 34Z and the 34" walkbehind.
The 2" increase in deck size will make it just a little more productive, and it will still go through a 36" gate.
The one in the photo above is a pistol grip version. The mower is also avail with the Prosteer controls.

There is one more difference. The 34" deck height adjustments are on the front casters, like most other fixed decks(4 spacers). The 36 & 48 will use the Gravely J pin system.

Is gravely in the middle of updating their website?? None of their WBs are showing the prosteer option like they used to.

They still show the Pro Steer. You have to chose gear or hydro drive first.

The ones listed with FXP after them are the Pro Steers.

I see...so what does "FL" and "FX" stand for. If "FXP" is the prosteer, the 36" is the only one you can get it on?

I'd much rather have a 32" with J pin height adjust than a 34" you have to move casters on. 34" is a good size, fits through more gates. But the J pin system is more precise and clean and adjusts over a wider range. The 34" is a step backwards I think.

I agree with Bruce32 about the height adjustment method. The J pins are slick, and a real advantage over the typical caster adjustment method. I am a Gravely dealer, and I feel Gravely has taken a step backward by doing away with the J pin adjustment. Maybe if enough dealers complain, the will rethink their decision

There are two reasons why they, Gravely, went this direction. First, metal cost, this new design uses less metal for the deck and height adjustments. Second, a lot of customers were complaining how heavy the front end of the machines are. This design is a lot easier to lift when going on trailer and jumping curbs. I like both designs, oh yeah this machine will sell for $1999 suggested promo w/ pistol grips and the 13 twin Kawi. We will sell it for $1899, that's hard to beat!

Travis,
I have not had any customers complain about the heavy front end, but yes, it is a little heavier. You are correct about the cost. It always comes down to cost in the end. I just wish they would at least make the J pin system an option on the 34" machines.

Every person I have showed a Gravely and a Toro fixed deck to has complained about the Gravely being too heavy. They may go back we'll see.
