    I am looking for a new mower and my dealer carries bobcat and gravely. He quoted me:

    Bobcat 48in belt 15Kaw for $3,073 out the door
    or
    Gravely 48in belt 15Kaw for $3,180 out the door

    I am kinda leaning toward the bobcat but what do you think about these prices and which one is better?

    What is retail? Seems a little high on both machines.

    I bought a Gravely 1548 belt drive a few years ago for a lot less than that, maybe around $2600. Maybe it is inflation.
