    I Use Mine For Back Up/trim/ 2nd And I Think They Shine In Gate/tight Area And Cemetery For A Smaller 5'-3'' Or Female. You Can Turn Them Around In A Trailer 6'-5'' They Mow Grass Great But Buck Tail, I Can't Mow ''Them Bastards '' I'm Going To Try A Higher Lift Balde ! I Haven't Tryed The 2x Blade Kit Yet! They Don't Mow Incline/hills They Don't Do Good Here! I Like To Change Blades About Every 25-30 Hours Once A Week /sundays

    As a Gravely dealer, I might add a little here. As stated before, it does have the deep commercial deck. It is a great little machine with lots of power and a good cut. It will not handle hills well at all. This is due to the narrow wheelbase it shares with it's little brother, the commercial 34Z. Outside of the hillside handling issue, we have not had one bad comment from any of our customers who have purchased them.
