Gravely 44Z

My new-new baby. Dealer replaced the "new" one he originally sent me that had rust and wear.

It has the mulch kit installed, and I was impressed when I saw the under-deck photo, as I had mowed 1 acre of wet lawn yesterday, and the deck looked CLEAN.

I do not consider it a "scam" so much as a misunderstanding. They did right by me, and I got the mower I wanted. It's pretty awesome too!

How is the power with the 17hp Kawasaki and mulching?

How is the cut quality?

Mower worked fine this past season, though I only got about 8 cuts in with it before the season ended. No striping pics yet, though the kit made a noticeable difference.

The power seemed fine to me, though I have no real basis for comparison. It was able to go full speed and mulch without an issue. What was interesting was that when I would disengage the blades, a big pile of grass clippings would drop onto the ground. There must be a hell of a lot of life to keep all that stuff under the deck like that. Also, there was almost no grass clumping on the deck, even though the grass was damp and I hadn't coated the deck with anything.

Cut quality seemed good. At least equal to what my landscaper was doing with his walk-behind toros, and light-years beyond the neighbor's tractors and residential ZTRs. VERY few stringers and good equal cut length.

I love the thing. It's build quality is absolutely superb. I wish I had looked at the small gavelys sooner. It destroyed anything else I looked at in the price range, including Dixons and Hustlers.
