I would go Scag or Gravely. I have a Pro Turn 148, however if I was buying a 52in Deck I think I would step up to a 252 for the extra power. I looked extensively at Scag, Dixie Chopper, Ex Mark, Toro, Wright, Hustler and Gravely. I settled on gravely due to the build quality, the components used and the cut quality of the new X Factor deck. The gravely mowers are (IMO) built better than Exmark, Toro or Dixie Chopper. The only other mower I was considering was the Scag and the big reason I didn't buy it was because the dealer was about 20 miles away, plus I've been dealing with my local Gravely dealer for 10 years and hes a great guy. I also like the color red.

I'm gonna eat my words on cussing the Gravely here. I was stuck in the past a bit, with old Gravely Z's not cutting very well. The new decks do a good job. I am actually considering one for the first time ever, this spring.

Huh too bad this is an old thread i didn't see before,

I would have told him to get the Grasshopper… great machines of the unsung hero type and the dealer is close and great.

Hands down grasshopper

I was just reading through this thread and hadn't seen this post yet obviously, and I was like isn't that the same guy in the 152 vs 252 thread I was talking to, and he was wanting to get a Gravely? So I opened it up in another window and was like huh...guess he changed his mind.

Ya sometimes you are just off base. Gravely has improved over the past few years. Older Gravely's cut poorly. That is what I based my judgment off of. Gravely has stepped up their game.
