I'm looking at the Gravely PM 34Z. It looks like it would be ideal for getting through those small gates, and save a lot of time. I'd rather grab a Cub Cadet Z-wing, but it's not going to be available in Canada until spring, 2006. Is anyone using one of these Gravelys? I'd like to know how the cut is, and if they are reliable machines. They cost about $6,000 here in Canada, which is pretty cheap compared to the larger Z's, which start at around $10,000. Yes I know, we pay a fortune for machines up here. You guys in the U.S.A. would have a heart attack if you saw the inflated prices we pay for snow plows and salt spreaders.
