Hello everyone, new to Lawnsite and I appreciate all the good info. Here is my question. I'm about to trade in my 8 year old 14 HP hyrdrostatic Ariens tractor to the dealer I bought it from for a Gravely 32" Pro G belt drive walk behind. I just put in a new lawn so I've got stubble but it's coming in. Can I expect a better cut with the WB and save time? I have about a half an acre. How about the learning curve? What do you think of the price: $1900 with the trade. I will ask him to throw in a grass catcher. The Ariens needs some work, I turned it on this spring and there was a long period of blue smoke coming out of the exhaust. The Gravley is about 2 years old and never been run. I know it is a discontinued model but I think anything bigger would be a waste of money and machine. It seems like an impressive mower. The dealer said it would be the last mower I would ever buy. I appreciate your thoughts.
