    Does anyone have any experience with the Prostance 34" Gravely stander?

    pretty sweet unit. Only issue would be if your a large (wide) guy, it can be tight. Otherise it's designed really well.

    My only caution is that these small deck stand ons aren't good on hills because the wheels are so close together. Up and down you would be ok. Side to side would be a no no.

    There was a good write up in Turf Magazine about them (well, the everride color) a few months back.

    They should be selling for right around 5k. That's what you are gonna pay for a 48" hydro walk behind. A foot less on the deck but you can get in gates and you dont' have to walk.

    Thanks for the info Tallimeca. I am a wide stocky guy. 5'7" 240lbs:weightlifter:

    This will be a mower for back yards, and any area I cant get a Lazer Z 66 into. I am gonna have to get an accelerator bagger and a jrco dethather for it also, so looking at about 6 bills. ouch!

    It is nothing more than a red Great Dane. They are quality machines.

    I checked into Wright, but the closest dealer is like 150 miles away. I dont know if I want something with no dealer support in my area.

    Ask the dealers in your area if they can get them from any of their distributors. I'am sure they deal with more than one distributor.
