So I have been an eXmark user and owner for around 4.5 years now. Nothing special, just a 36" Metro belt drive. I was at a local dealer yesterday that is much closer to my house than the exMark,Toro, Scag dealer I've been doig business with. The dealer I was at is a Gravely and Husqvarna dealer. While there, I was looking at the new Gravely Pro Stance 48". Got on it drove it around the lot a little and the owner was showing me the machine. I can say it looks high quality and very nice. It has a Kawasaki motor which I like even more. Have one on the eXmark and it's been great. Anyways after 5-10 minutes I asked how much. He said new it is $7,499 but this one was a lightly used "demo". Meaning people don't take it to jobs but more or less drive it around the lot and the owners have taken it home a few times to cut their own lawns. Hours were under 50 and he said it was $7,000. The actual walk behind 48 was only $800 less. He also said that a 36" pro stance was coming out in 2014. I guess I'm not really in the market for anything over a 36 or even a new mower for that matter. But, after 4.5 years I am growing tired of walking behind a belt drive and not having reverse which is needed sometimes. Just a reverse assist which is useless if trying to come back up a slight incline. Anyways, I thought I would post here to see what you guys think of Gravely mowers as a whole and this unit in particular if you are familiar. I don't know if asking this is similar to which truck? Ford, Chevy, Dodge etc. and I will just get brand loyalist raves and then the opposite from different users. I guess I'm wondering, are these are high quality machines similar to Scag and Exmark? Or, are they inferior with just a very small percentage of market share? Do any of you own them and what are your thoughts and experiences? Have any of you worked for companies that use these and have switched from other makes so you can give a comparison of some sort? Any of you that have ran several different types including Gravely and can comment on anything you liked or disliked about them? I'm just interested because if I sell the eXmark, having this dealer literally 5 minutes from the house would be so great plus they have Saturday hours. In addition the rest of my stuff is echo and this dealer has Husqvarna. I have read good things about the Husqvarna backpacks on this site, specifically the 580BT. At any rate, I'd like to see what you all have to say about Gravely.
