no major problems at all. I have put 470 hrs on it this year and all I have had to replace was a strut bolt, because it vibrated loose and made one side of my deck hit the dirt. Luckily its got those little chains holding it up.
Its just like a commercial mower, but its like a hybrid between homeowner and commercial. I was only out of 5 grand on it too.
The mow quality is amazing too. I have had an exmark lazer and I would rather have the gravely than that anyday!

Those do seem like nice mowers for the price. I just can't understand why they went with 1/2 inch cutting height adjustment rather than 1/4 inch.

Which gravely do you run? The one with the stand on plate like the toro grand stand or the stand on plate like the wright stander? I think the one with the stand on plate like grandstand also has an adjustable deck which I think I like seeing as I change it quite often

Not sure if it was mentioned but join Planet - wealth of information! I believe they have some resources/spreadsheets/books that can help you figure your hourly rate based on your costs.
