Gravely's new entry level Pro-Turn ZTR

Saw this at the dealer today. He sells the 52" for $6000.00, $1500 more for bagger. Looked very well built with ZT2800 hydros. I know a lot of guys are on a budget and this is your chance to buy a full commercial ZTR for the price of a walk behind!

I have a new Gravely dealer near me and have been spending time bsing and looking at their gear. I will be replacing our entire fleet of 6 different mowers here soon and and would like to stick to one brand for discount and convenience reasons. They seem to have very few repairs in the shop and I've been able to drive almost everyone when they bring them in for the night. I'm truly impressed, they are tight with smooth controls and comfortable layouts.

It sure helps to have a cool dealer like that!! You could get fleet pricing which is 20% off!

We have the 60 and it's a nice, tight machine. I mentioned it in the other thread but it has proven surprisingly capable. The 3200's are nice to operate and have the benefit of the larger shafts from the zt3400's. It would benefit from a little more speed but is still fairly productive at 9mph. The rear track width is a little narrow for the larger deck but should be perfect for a 48 or even 52 incher.

any disadvantages due to the narrower wheelbase, seems a 60 would help you move over more riding in a different track than a normal larger z. what engine are you running?

I looked at those at a local dealer when shopping and wasn't really impressed. It really looks and feels as though it's more of a residential mower with it's narrow wheelbase and build. Also seemed as though access room for service and maintenance was quite tight. Cut was good. I ended up with an Outlaw, and for another $700 it was a no brainer for me. Alot more mower for the money.

You need to feather the foot pedal more to avoid scalping.

As a rule of thumb hillside traction is better with a wider wheelbase although this machine is very well balanced and is able to handle all but the steepest hills that our super z can handle. The frame, engine, and hydros feel rock solid and very capable and I'm pretty picky.

Stopped by the local dealer the ProTurn 52 is for $6,199 and the ProTurn 152 for $7,499...

For residential mowing of maybe 10 accounts weekly would the 52 be sufficient?
