Be sure to fill it up with gas...kidding. Congrats on the new Gravely, I know I love my 152Z. I looked at a 34Z at the dealer the other day, that is one heavy duty little machine. I would love to have one as well. I found with my 152 that the stock Gravely high-lifts are the best all-round, especially for all the bahia I have around here. I have a mulch kit on my 152, works great. I know that Accelerator builds a side mount catcher for it, if you do any bagging. Good luck with it this year.

I have to admit these mowers have caught my interest lately. How are they in terms of rutting due to weight? How do they compare with a Wright 32 stander?
