I am looking to buy a 48" walk behind mower for my property. I cut about 1-1/4 acre with about 25 trees and beds to manuever around. That is why I am giving up the tractor for the walk behind. It is pretty much flat (one small sloped area) and generally smooth lawn. I looked at both a new Gravely Pro G(gear, floating deck, electric PTO, pistol grip) for $2,995 and a new Exmark Metro (gear, fixed deck, manual blade engage, ECS) for $2,895. Both have the same Kaw 15HP engine, Peerless trans and 7 gauge deck. Are these mowers pretty much equivalent or is one much better than the other for this use. Look forward to your opinions.
