I know it's not a big deal but it just chaps me that we spend upwards of $12-$18k on a mower and they can't get something as simple and needed as a correctly set height control gauge. Shoot I've bought vehicles for less that travel 70 mph all day, heat, a/c, tunes, carry people and cargo, quietly, comfortably, and safely. Not to simplify too much, but a mower needs to go, stop, and cut grass nicely and accurately. It's all in the details. I know it's not just Gravely and other people have commented about other brands having the same problem and if it were just a matter of an adjustment I wouldn't care. But when it's build so that it can't be adjusted properly and still use transport mode then it's just poorly thought out.
