    Looks like a nice mower. I think they now realize they waited a bit too long doing this. I, and everyone who has one loves their gravely. Some people think the small riders are stupid and a waste of money, but those are the people who have not witnessed the difference one of these makes over a walkbehind, which makes them an uniformed source.

    Cool, I am in the market for something like this for gates and small yards. Glad to see Exmark has an offering since I need something that can mulch and am confident of their mulching decks. Anyone know if they are available yet?

    I love wb's, but as you get older you need to save your legs. And in the South in July, sitting beats standing any day.

    Looking at it a little closer it seems to have a few minor advantages over the Gravely.

    1. 19hp vs 15hp. Better for mulching
    2. An antiscalp wheel on the side. Important when mowing Bermuda on a slope. You put the anti-scalp wheel on the downhill side so you don't get a check-shaped gouge on that side. Sometimes even 36" and smaller decks will gouge in the right situation. Nice to have a wheel there.
    3. It strikes me as perhaps having a lower center of gravity.
    4. 8" wide rear tire vs 7". Hey, every bit counts on these skinny things. Though fronts are a little smaller.
    5. 155 lbs lighter. Could be good or bad. But low ground pressure is a plus in some conditions and I'll be carrying two ZTR's so low weight is nice for safety reasons on a 3500 lb axle trailer.

    It appears to have some sort of integrated transaxles vs seperate pumps/motors. Not sure how that plays out. And I bet it will cost more, being an Exmark.

    it's a very nice mower. The only problem that I can happening, is that they are going to want $7,000 probably (I am just guessing) for that 34" mower.

    We paid 5995 plus tax for a zcat this season over priced but after it's paid for the pain is gone.

    7 grand for a 34" mower Troy...let's hope not. Glad I can't use something that tiny.

    Was just going to ask how much, if anyone knew, they might be going for $$$$.
