Thanks for the link GMLC, I had saw that post before but couldn't find it again. Dealer had me doubting that the 460 was included, especially when he called the regional rep in front of me.

Think I will call Gravely my self tomo. Really pisses me off when the dealer and rep tell me I don't know what I'm talking about when I KNOW I have read and looked at the stuff here on Lawnsite!

Southern lawn, Centipede and St. Augustine primarily, and the common southern weeds...dandelion, wild onion, dallisgrass.

Like I said earlier, if it weren't for this site and what I have come to like about Gravely from here, I would take this machine back Monday and NEVER look at another Gravely. But I realize its not entirely Gravely's fault and don't want to hold this against them. Not until I talk to Gravely myself tomo and find out who the regional rep is for this area, and why he told me that I was incorrect about the baffles.

I cut all cool season grasses up here so I dont know much about how they cut down south. I know a bunch of guys on here have really good cut quality on the same grasses you have. I hope they can chime in on your thread. Maybe they use different blades?

Did you like the ride with the air seat and isolated platforms?

This is how my dealer and rep say the deck is suppose to be. Maybe I am stupid, but I don't see any baffles at all.

Oh the ride is spot on, almost too comfortable. Good steering control positions, great seat height and arm rest support. Machine feels good and planted in ditch banks. Kawi 31 HP has plenty of power, pretty bad on gas but it is brand new and the deck is not pitched right, so that is probably not a fair evaluation.

Love everything about the machine except the deck right now, but Im sure that will get fixed tomo.

Baffles are not there. Almost looks like the holes are drilled on the front skirt though. Dealer forget to install them??

Looks like a new deck with the baffles removed. Intalling them will improve lift and leave a cleaner cut in most conditions.
