OK, you are in sinc with three others that recommend the TORO over the GRAVELY. My first choice was the TORO but the GRAVELY seemed to have the good reputation. I want something reliable and trouble free for at least another 1000 hours.
Seems the 2004 vintage is no issue then? The Gravely is a 2009 and it has only 120 hours more than the Toro. It has the smaller deck though.
I plan to buy one or the other Monday morning. I only have 1.25 acres to mow and the TORO may be too big for that.
This has become a difficult decision!!!!
