Soon I will be changing my hydro filters and oil as I approach 75 hours on my machine. I want to thank mtmower for putting the whole procedure in his thread!
So, do you double cut to have the grass look like a checker board. Or it's 2 of you'll just cutting together in 2 different direction? All we have do here in the South is St. Aug and Centipede grass. Very little Bermuda grass.

Same thing happened when I ordered factory blades and a stripe kit which I ended up ordering myself and had within two days as well. Took him over 4 weeks.
Hey GMLC, considering all of the good publicity, not to mention the amount of good publicity you've gone out of your way to post here on LS, I would think your dealer would be willing to jump thru hoops to keep you happy!

The time you've spent sharing your excitement with other members is something any good dealer should really appreciate....and I would think he would show his appreciation by trying to avoid things like this!

Does he have a legitimate reason for the extremely long delivery time....is it something beyond his control?

I change the direction I mow each week. So last weeks stripes are sometimes still visable causing the checker board look.

The only thing I can think of he is a small dealer so maybe he only places an order when he has a bunch of parts he needs to save on shipping. But I would think Gravely would pay for shipping on warranty parts.

When I bought my mower I was told parts are only 2 days away worse case senario. So far service after the sale has been poor.

That's what I do. But I double cut when I cut my yards cause I don't have a striping kit for my mower so that's helps the strips pop out more

A lot has to do with the type of grass your cutting. I have a stripe kit but even without one northern grasses stripe good.
