Just a reminder

Don't forget to factor in what you think about the dealers involved. In many cases that's the most important factor involved, but it's sometimes overlooked when it comes "decision making time". Will he stand behind his product, will he take care of you and get you "in and out" asap? How about a "loaner"?

I'd try to ask other owners that have bought from both places how they rate the dealer, and then try to talk to them yourself if possible. How well the dealer treats you after the sale is much more important than the difference of a few dollars that may be involved at the point of sale.

Good luck! Stan

Gravely makes one hell of a machine. I have also heard good things about Bobcat. But Stan is 100% right, you need to make sure you have good dealer support. Gravely itself has customer support second to none.

Those prices are below promo prices and way below MSRP for 2013 models. So I would say those are good prices.
