That is a long wb. We put 2 36inch wb in our 12 ft trailer, will have to measure.

IMO get rid of the 10 ga steel and make it all 7 ga. My walk behind takes a beating. Better options out there unless you're dead set on owning a Scag.

Increase the size of the frame holding the deck to the same size as the older models like the Pro V and the SWZU, add some anti scalp wheel, a 52 inch deck option, and I think it will be a winner.

Place the Scag at the front of the trailer, and then drive your Gravely right up to the Scag's drive tires.

Problem is, I have several customers who have Bermuda that only want every other week service, so the Bermuda gets ~ 4" tall before I can get back to cut it. Don't let anyone try and tell you that it is a stiff grass at this point, because it's not. It will lay over and not stand back up very well, and if you add in moisture it only complicates things. This is stuff I'm sure you're aware of, but it's a problem that we face as well with getting our decks to cut well.
You nailed this one right on the head. Many of my clients have bermuda, and they can't afford to have it mowed every week (although this is the minimum it should be cut). To compensate for the infrequent mowing, I cut it tall at 2" and make sure my blades are RAZOR SHARP. I use high lift Gators for my blade set.

With some fab work anything is possible. It wouldnt take much to weld on some brackets and install some anti scalp wheels.

For some reason local dealer has got some unit to sell before year end
and I thought we might buy one. What about that engine, is it a new
model? I wasn't thinking about fab work I was thinking about bolting some on off another scag that has em.
