After my father brought home a 74in CAT powered Dixie Chopper I decided my next mower was going to be a Gravely 472 Diesel.

UPS trucks start and stop all day long and the one I was on had just shy of 500,000 miles on it. What 48'' mower are you looking at?

The only thing I don't like about it are the wheels. The pictures on their website is the 52" model
Here is a pic of the 48" model http://www.government-fleet.com/chan...or-mowers.aspx
