Just seeing what people think I see a lot of talk on here about exmark I love my Gravleys but I'm always looking for something better. I don't know much about exmark there's not any dealers close by so I was just wondering what people thought.

A lot of people like exmark's but if their aren't any dealers close by you can't really demo one, and if the dealers are pretty far away I would stick to Gravley's just cause their dealer support near you.

Check out my review of the new Gravely 400 series. I think it will be a game changer. My review will continue as we start to cut up north.

I'd stick with something with a dealer close by... it would suck to have to drive a couple hours to get a part.

On paper I like everything about the Gravely 400 except maybe the deck. Time will tell. Demo both.

The deck is kind of the most important feature, don't you think???

Deck definitely ranks up there at the top. I should clarify, that this deck my be great for southern grasses, Im waiting to see what does in damp, thick, fine, northern fescue. If it proves to cut as well or better than the other brands I'm looking at, and is built just as well, then a 460 may very well be my next mower.
