I had an 2007 260Z Gravely that I LOVED. Unfortunately it caught fire and burned last summer. It was a great mower and I bought it because my grandfather has a 50 year old gravely tiller that he bought new and it still runs. This was my mower before it burned. I was cutting a foreclosed house that hadn't been mowed in about 2 years. The gravely muscled through it!

I got a Pro Turn 260. So far it has done everything I needed it to do. I bought it because I like the sturdy x deck.

Damn, BeastMowed! Is that a cornfield!? I'd have kept my mower on the sidelines and used a match! lol! Did you find out why the mower caught fire and burned up?

Anywho, my pro-turn 152 is a about a year old. So far I'm pleased with it. I bought it because it's a sexy rock-solid unit that was reasonably priced. I prefer the low maintenance points type of machine, Gravely felt like a good fit. The wider stock castor wheels caught my eye too.

Sorry to hear that your walk-behind isn't working. Have you taken it to your dealer to have them look at it? I am going to send you a PM so we can get more information to help you with this.

Thanks.

I have a Gravely Proturn 148. Great machine and has never been out of service. A WAW 34 that works quite well despite the way you adjust the height. Seems odd but cuts great. A APV that you may not want to know what I think about It but....the hose is designed right beside the exhaust and melted the first time I used it. Covered by warranty (yeah). The vac works well for leaves that are on pavement as long as you don't vac any twigs that will clog it in a heart beat. Must say I cursed the heck out of that machine last week. Anyway that's my story and I'm sticking with it. Overall....Gravely mowers are top notch. EDIT: my dad has two gravely walk behinds that have to be 25 plus years old and still going strong. Kudos to you for asking your clientele what they think of your equipment.

RussellB - Thanks for your comments on your Gravely equipment. We will pass your thoughts on to our product managers so they can look at these issues. We're glad to hear that your Dad has a couple units that are working strong after 25 years. It's great to hear these stories and want you to know we are here to help with those units that might need adjustments as well.

Thanks again for taking time to respond.

I'm in the market for a new mower. Maybe with the right incentive I will buy one....
