gravely 152- dealer offered a deal

I have been searching my area for a 52 inch machine. The local dealer called with an offer on a 152 with the kohler 23 horsepower for $5999 TOTAL.

Any thoughts as to quality, power? I was also looking at the Ferris 1500 which are around $6400 + tax in the area.
any thoughts helpful, thanks

just questioning anybody that has experienced the mowers, as the Ferris with the 25hp kaw would price out to be around $1k more. I think the price is fair for the gravely but just dont want to look back and regret it!

I have that 152 Z, but with 23 kawa (FH680v), it is excellent mower to me. Hydro is very nimble and sensitive, and most of all, the cut. It cuts way better than my 52 eXmark TTHP. I just added home-made mud guard on the deck to give beautiful stripe. I don't know about Kohler so no input.
I for sure kawi man. BTW, I got in Feb this year for $6602 out the door (6.5%tax included). I won't trade any other mower with it.

for a mid frame ztr, gravely is the way to go. for the price and quality. for the cut and ride,no one can come close. i have 3 gravely mowers. if it wasn't for bad dealer support and we don't care answer from gravely over something that was big to me. i would buy more but thats in the future i do like ferris but not the 1500 i'm looking at a 3000 for late in the year of ''07''
