The dealer said they have been selling them for about 4 years and only replaced one belt, but that was due to a guy running over his son's BB gun.
I find that hard to believe, but for real what are they going to say!

My question is why would you drop Toro for this? Or the other way around?

That is what I was thinking. I was curious why they quit selling Gravely as well. They also had 1 Bobcat on the floor but didn't even want to talk about it.

They said that the rep quit coming around and Toro started letting some folks go.

On the other hand this particular business did win a local award for one of the best small business in the area.

Demonstrate the mower, call the references, if you are not pleased then move on to something else. This product is far superior to Gravely stuff

That's a mighty BOLD statement! Please explain why such is so. I don't own a Gravely. I do know their sales are good because of their quality and warranty. Gravely has taken their share of the market with hard work, and a good product. Never heard of Worldlawn.

Apparently from looking at Gary's post, he appears to be a dealer! That just about sums up that opinion.

Thanks to everyone for their replies. I am still in the research phase for buying a mower. I am planning a trip back to the local Gravely dealer cause originally they showed me a ZT HD 60 but I decided to make my budget a little bigger and look at the Pro Turn 100s. Plus still have some other mower dealers to visit as well.

I didn't look at them when I went up there but a guy I work with has one and he loves it. Plus I liked the local dealer.

All I would ask is that you should look at the mower before making claims
I have looked at the equivalent gravely and it does not stack up
