    Size...you really won't gain much with 2 extra inches. But the wrights are always getting very good reviews.

    just bought a 32 wright in december and it will go through any gate, including wood fences. the 34 gravely might be a bit tight in some applications, i recommend the 32

    That 2 inches will help getting through a gate, but not mowing, ya it might get you one more cut pass, but in the end is not worth it.

    they are talking about the gravely prostance 34" , not a walkbehind.

    Plus the motor blowing is irrelavant because they both run the kawasaki

    I have had a full year mowing on the 34 Prostance. Over all I do like it.
    My big issue is the weight... 830 lbs. I live in a rural area cutting non fenced yards that are mostly grass over original soft soil. No suburban manicured stuff.
    The machine leaves ruts.
