I am about 1 week away from buying one or the other and I am very uncertain which to buy. The gravely has more power and it appears to have a stronger deck, larger wheel motors and pumps, but Hustler seems to have a better overall review. In general, I mow newer sub divisions that weren't graded very well before seeding. Some minor rutting and washouts. The lots are 1-1.5 acres. About 1/4 of the accounts have long, even pitched hillls (pond area).
