To bad too because the Gravely people are very professional and the mowers seem well built. How about those control arms in stead of deck chains...lets see where did I see those first ... oh yeah BB doesn't use chains either. lol Keep us updated with the traction compared to your Scag.
I was told that Gravely worked hard to lower the center of gravity greatly over the 200 series. The hydro gear is mounted lower and the deck control arms make a big difference from what they told me. I will update everyone on hillside stability and traction when I start mowing. They had no hills for me to mow. I know they do offer a mulching kit for the x-factor deck as well as a striping kit.
