Just Purchased Gravely Compact Pro 34

Just wanted to let everyone know that I just purchased a new Gravely Compact Pro 34, with factory mulch kit installed. The dealer will get it ready tomorrow, and I will go pick up this Friday around noon.

Just wanted to thank all of the posters here for leading me to the right decision. I was down to the Exmark Phazer and the Pro 34. When I found out that the Phazer has been discontinued, and this mower is over $500 less, the decision was really easy. Plus, there are many things I like better about this mower, like the hydraulic motor drives vs transaxle.

So thanks again. I will take some pictures and post this weekend. I think the freezing rain will stop by then.

I would not count on that. I think another winter storm is headed your way tomorrow or Friday.

I want one of those 34z's bad. I think by next year I'm going to end up with a 34" and a 60" Gravely. I love my 52" but everywhere I go with it I could have a 60" in there.

OK...going to pick up my Gravely Compact Pro 34 at around noon today [that's if the freezing rain stays to the west of New Orleans as it has been]

Any final bits of advice and/or questions to ask the dealer? I know to ask about ethanol in the gas and whether to use stabilizer. I think I will also ask about extra holes for 1/4" increments as some commenters noted on another thread.

All comments / questions welcome.

I will post pictures this weekend, as it is supposed to be sunny tomorrow.
