Which brands do you use or heard of being good?
Hustler is comming out with one this year i beleive
i know exmark is going to have one called the phazer
Gravleys 1434, many guys on here have one.
not sure if scag is going to have a 34 but i think they are going to have a 36??
I have heard the gravley is okay do a search.
If you can live with a 36" unit the Scag is very heavy duty but is pricey. We run the 48" version and like them a lot. Most of the other brands I see at our dealer are not built as well as Scag but they don't cost as much. The Gravely is widely used in our area but don't seem to be holding up well to heavy usage, but that is not surprising.
going with something that small why wouldnt u just buy a wb and save a couple bucks...
Why walk all day when u can Ride
The commercial Gravely 34" ZTR, is the 34Z, not the 1434.
We have sold a bunch, and they are holding up great for the commercial guys. The early models, in the first year, had a combined choke/throttle control that caused some problems, but Gravely came out with a kit to convert to two individual control levers. That solved the problem, and is covered by warranty.
Is it on the web i have never saw 1, local dealer here has a 1434 i think man it has a price like 2 grand.
It should be on the Gravely website. The 34Z is one tough little machine. Super heavy duty construction throughout. Great choice for tight access, (gated) yards. It is narrow, so it will not work well on hillsides. This is a great flatland machine, but not designed to handle slopes.
All the little, narrow, 34"/36" machines have a problem with hillsides due to there narrow track.
I've heard nothing but positive comments about the Gravely 34Z from those that have one. Exmark, Hustler, Scag, Dixie Chopper, Encore, Dixon, and Wright also have 34" or 36" mowers. Cub Commerical has the 48" Z that the deck folds up to make it 36" wide to fit through gates.
