    Is anyone using these? How is the cut compared to the other brands? I am seeing them more and more in my area. Thanks.

    I do not run one of these machines but a few local lco's run the gravely hydro's. From what I have heard, they are a good machine. (I have not heard to many bad things about Gravely as a company in general.) Hope this helps!

    I bought a gravely 48" walkbehind 17 hp with the floating deck this spring. I use the pistol grip model. It mows great and has plenty of power even in taller grass. The pistol grips will make your hands a little sore but that will wear off within the first couple of weeks. I would go with the 48" deck at least if you have medium to large yards. There are a few places this year i could not negotiate even the deck was bigger than 48". Plus there isnt that much of a difference between the 48" and the 52" as far as production is concerned. For residentials I think it is perfect and I mow some larger yards with it to. I would invest in a good pair of shoes such as "lawngrips" etc. because the arches of your feet will get tender when you hit pot holes with the velke.
