They do stripe well without the kit. I am currently using the rubber flap with great results. I tried the hex roller but it has very little clearence. Its good for sports fields with perfecty flat surfaces.

Yes. My 452 has an air seat and rubber isolated platforms, so in my opinion it has much better comfort. The Scag Cheetah would be the closest to a Gravely 400 series.

Skip the stripe kit, IMO they're overrated and very played out as I've seen most mowers stripe fine without a kit and I prefer the look without the kit anyway, I don't think this has been asked, which engine?

Kohler Command PRO EFI 29
I really like the electronic fuel injection. It should cut down on fuel costs.

Hey Ryan41
Congratulations on the mower! I'm actually supposed to pick that exact mower up at my dealer on Thursday. Miine is a 2012 Demo with 40hrs, but now I'm having second thoughts because they also have a 52' 2012 Pro-Stance Stand-on brand new, and a 2013 48' Stand On all for the same price.

Not sure if I'm drinking to much of the Stand On Koolaid..LOL.

Was the ZTR a no brainer for you or did you look at the Stand-On? How big are your yards. I'm mostly 1/3 to 1/2 acre.

Mike
