Because I am a decent guy, I will give the machine one fair observation. The hydros and steering levers worked like butter. The only good part of the machine I noticed. It seems your engineers and R&D did a spectacular job on the hydros and steering but failed miserably in a lot of other places.
NMS0219 did you actually verify the speed of the machine? I'll agree with you on the steering and hydros. Just awesome! You shouldn't have to jerry rig any parts on your new machine. That is an immediate fail from Gravely. If they want to test the machine for a year and make noticeable changes before they bring it to market they should. I'm not paying 8 grand to be a test subject.
