    While we were at the Gravely dealer picking up our 34Z for gated yards I was looking at all the bigger models. Man was i impressed with the way these machines were built. They looked like you could drop a bomb on them and they would come out fine. Massive frames, massive front forks, massive front tires. EVERYTHING was MASSIVE. Next year I WILL be getting a new 152Z and getting rid of or keeping our 48' lazer hp as a back up mower.

    they are built like a tank it seems, of course if you value speed and striping, you should look elsewhere for a zero turn

    Do you have a Gravely or have you had one? I am looking at them too, and would like to know more from your experience.

    I haven't used them, just spoke to some companies in my area and some love the Gravely's...however they are all the older guys or people that aren't banging out 20-25 accounts a day by themselves. They seem to be slow and don't stripe well. Younger guys love those exmarks and I am starting the Dixie revolution in this area...far faster

    yah... they don't have any good speed (13MPH!) or any good quality cut...

    hey BS, read what I wrote...this is what OTHERS told me before we get into an arguement. I don't have one, this is what others have told me and my old conclusions were made thereafter. They could be awesome from all I know, and what you did looks very good. I will never even bother to look at one though

    Those are some nice looking pictures of some quality cuts using Gravely. Each person has to decide what the "right" mower for them.
