I have one of the Pro walk 36" ordered. If I have to wait 3 more weeks for it I might go with something else.I have too many gated yards that I am mowing with a push mower that I am already tired of.

ask your dealer to ask the Gravely rep. I was told by our Gravely rep. they were not going to start building the WB's until April 1. My dealer said he can't even order one until that date. Said it should be here mid-April. Something about because the winter was so rough they were busy building snow equipment for longer than normal so now they are behind on mower production.

i told my dealer to tell them they might have snow on the ground but we are cutting grass down here lol



lawnking - yeah i noticed that too..kitty approved lol

My Dealer talked to the rep a few days ago and they located one of last years model at another dealer if I wanted it.I told them if the new ones were not here by the 7th of April I was having them get it.

Our local dealer has new Gravely walkbehinds in stock. I guess he got his order in the first batch they built this season.

it is worth the wait. the new ones are all fixed/floating deck. they all come floating as i understand it but you can put pins in them to make them fixed.. the 2010's you either bought a fixed deck or floating deck mower. you had to choose one or the other. also the engine recieved a major upgrade from the kawasaki kai in 2010 to the kawasak fs for 2011

Congrats

On the new mower the Gravely is a fine machine, May I ask what the price was, and did you price a Gravely 260, around and about figure would be OK
