Tweaked Gravely at GIE

Pic of new Pro Turn line at GIE. Taking a solid machine and making a little bit better. Improved deck belt tensioning system, better deflector shield design, ROPS relocated, better seat, couple other small items.

The new deck height wheel on the 400 series was plastic, but MUCH easier to adjust.

Gas tanks look a lot like a Toro/Exmark now. Any pics of it from behind?

Looks like the weight adjuster knob

Did they change the gas tanks where they can be filled all the way up instead of leaving giant air pockets at the top?

Every time I get into mud or sloppy conditions with my Gravely's, I wonder why the fuel tanks aren't designed to cover more of the tires. Well, guess someone else was thinking the same thing.

That's an epa thing. All the gas tanks are like that now. The diesels are only ones that fill all the way up now...

Here are the links to the new pages on our website for the 2016 Pro-Turn 200/400 mowers. They will be available in February, and there are some improvements that I think will be of interest to you guys.

2016 Pro-Turn 400 Series

2016 Pro-Turn 200 Series

It was great meeting some of you at the show!!!

Let me know if you have any questions.

They made some nice aesthetic changes. I like how Ztrs are getting less boxy looking. I know it's just a visual thing but it might make the operator take more pride in his work.
