One thing that turned me off from the Gravelys were their tiny rear tires. They look like doggone caster wheels.

Check out Krigger sometime. They sell Scag, Hustler, and Husqvarna. I think they may be picking up Exmark soon also, but I don't know for sure.

Good to know there, perhaps I'll check them out too.

Sounds good, I bought my Exmark from Arnold's Hardware in Natrona Heights - great guy there and he knows his s**t. Not to mention they carry Stihl there too.

I like the pistol grips and ECS because you can use those controls as leverage on hills. The Z-turn controls and T-bar controls would make me nervous on hills because you couldn't use the controls to leverage yourself.

If you understand what I'm trying to say. Kind of.

Krigger did pick up Exmark, it seemed they are phazing out the Hustler line. They had 48" Vantage in the back, it looked like a very nice unit.

There is a Gravely dealer on RT. 8, he is going to call me when he gets the Prostance in. Form the specs. I already know the rear tires are too small and it weighs almost 1000LBs.

I saw an ad in the paper Krigger was looking for an Exmark sales rep for their store. I was thinking about applying for it, but I have a couple other jobs I'm applying for first.

I guess they picked up Redmax and Exmark from Allegheny after they closed down.

That Gravely dealer is the one I live 2 miles from.
