Bump for a super nice mower. This will be just like the current Gravely machines, just a different color. It will be real easy to get parts for, even though the Great Dane line is going away. So, no worries there.
good luck with your sale. Hold onto it until spring if you have to. It should sell quick then.

let me break up the confusion

This brand new mower was our replacement to the one that burned. We fixed the one that burned for $3500. A buddy of mine sold me a used Super Surfer for $2500. Total: $6000. I am selling this super surfer so that I only have to pay $1000. That way I go from having one mower to having 2 mowers.

These are great mowers. I have owned 2. They leave a nice cut and are super fast. Good luck with the sale. Why did the other mower catch on fire? You can pm me if you want.

This is my second super surfer to catch fire. It always happens around leaf season. The first one happened about 7 years ago. When you are sucking up leaves, it seems that the leaves get lodged around the muffer pipe. The leaf catches fire and the gas line is right there. That is the only logic. He was in the middle of a yard when it happened no major leaf piles or anything. Left a 20' by 20' burn mark in the yard. These mowers are just awesome machines. Keep the mower blown off at all times. I have no regrets on ever purchasing a super surfer I have 3 and love them. Reason for selling new one: I was an accounting major in school. Money is always on my mind and alternative costs.
