Thanks for the review and pics! I think that you will be very satisfied with it. It is a very nice looking mower.

How did you like the deck height selector? It looks very similar to the one on my Gravely 260 Pro Ride. I also think that the 24.5 hp Kaw. (formerly 27 hp) will be more than enough power for that combo. I have that engine on my Pro Ride and have cut some thick, heavy spring growth lately and have yet to bog the engine down. Of course, that Pro Ride deck discharges so well that it doesn't probably need as much power as some of the tighter baffled decks need.

Keep us posted when you get it and take some pics of its cut.

You look like a kid in a candy store. So, exactly how many square miles of grass did you mow?
Yup, I was still in shock over them flying me down. Mowed for a couple hours.

That dial adjust deck is slick!

I used to live in Altamonte Springs on the north side of Orlando. We built homes and condos all over the area though, so I was wondering where you were at exactly for this demo? Might have been right near there at one time or another.

I bet he is returning the famous line that GMLC used to use when discussing the Bad Boy mowers----EL means Entry level mower. Remember, Stan has a Bad Boy.

Ah yes, I had forgot that to be honest. I do know that Stan has a BB though. Let the fun begin. Thanks Razorblades.


Hey, at least Stan isn't running "The Beast"

I believe the community was called "reunion" or something like that.

Actually one of the Gravely reps and I had some laughs about "EL" mowers.

You were down the I-4 corridor south of town then. If you take I-4 back up through AS, you'd go right past my old stomping grounds.
