    I used to have an old Gravely Pro50 hydro 50" cut, that left a great cut. Absolutly no problems with cut quality on that mower.

    I have a pro 50 belt drive that I love. I leaves great stripes if you use a 2 wheel velky. can't stand that single wheel stripe down the middle.

    TC, It takes some practice but you can finesse the turn. The key is to keep the inside wheel turning. You will never have a "true" zero turn but you can come close. I've found that when the turf is wet you have a much better chance of tearing it up. When It dries out you will be able to make the turn with minimal damage. I usually step off the proslide to be safe but it's not necessary. Just a bit of practice and you should be set.
