Gravely X-Factor I vs. X-Factor II Decks

Here is information from our Technical Group on the deck changes from X-Factor I to X-Factor II. Since some of the changes were running changes, I thought it would be good to clarify so you can better understand what deck is on the mowers you have, plan to purchase, etc.

Spindle Design

There has been a rolling change in the design of the spindles in the X-Factor I mower deck. The spindles have had numerous interior changes to improve reliability and longevity. The new spindles are the same shape and profile as previous black commercial spindles and can be identified by their red exterior paint.

Being that the change was ongoing during production, the best way to identify the design of the spindle is by inspecting the color of the exterior spindle housing. The X-Factor I mower deck may have either design, but the X-Factor II mower deck will all have the newly designed spindle assembly.

The new spindle design does fit in place of the old design, and both spindle designs are covered by a 3-year commercial warranty.

Discharge Opening

The discharge opening on the X-Factor II mower deck has been increased by 1.5 inches from the previous X-Factor I mower deck. This change will improve clipping dispersal, especially in demanding cutting situations. The chute profile has also been optimized for even clipping dispersal and reduced windrowing.

The change in the discharge opening can be identified by a serial number break on the unit. Any model built before serial number 20,000 will have the X-Factor I mower deck design and any model built after serial number 20,000 will have the new X-Factor II mower deck design.

Standard Adjustable Vacuum Baffles

Starting production in 2013, vacuum baffles were standard on Pro-Turn™ 400, Pro-Turn™ 200 and Pro-Turn™ 100 models. This allows the air flow underneath the mower deck to be adjusted depending on the conditions for maximum performance.

Let me know if you have questions.
