    Congratulations on finally deciding on that mower, it seems to be a very solid mower. I will be looking into one in june sometime, just waiting for the spring rush to be over and all the payments to start coming in and I will be in the same boat as you guys, I am actually going to go through the same dealer that GLMC did, seem like very good people to do business with.

    mtmower - congrats! I think you made a good decision. You will be happy with Gravely.


    prostreetcamaro - I feel ya. All these things have gone through my mind as well. I like the extra space and the heavier duty build that the 200 series and up have. I think the 200's are well worth the extra money over the 100's.

    When it comes time for me to reup I am not sure I need to pay an extra $1500 for a cushioned ride either. Like you said they are all commercial quality capable to cut machines. Lower operating costs means more money in our pocket.

    My dealer and I had this exact same conversation last week about the 460's. Was there enough stuff different about it to warrant the extra cost over the 260's.

    what exactly is difference between the 200's and 400's. I know the 'air ride" seat and control arm deck hangers are new. What else? My dealer hasn't gotten one in yet. 8/

    Isolated platforms for the engine, seat, and foot rest. Lower center of gravity, dial adjust deck, adjustable foot pedal and deck lift system, bigger frame, air seat, adjustable control arms, more engine options and Im sure I missed a few other things.

    I'm interested in Gravely also!!! What's the cost of the 452 series? It seems like it's tough like scag. Do you think it's better than scag or on the same level with them? I didn't read every last thread on this but I'm sure you probably said it. Can you give me a real quick review on it again? Thanks!*trucewhiteflag*

    I have run Scags for 15 years and still do. Honestly they are on the same level in my opinion. The Gravely cuts a little better in dry conditions and Scag cuts a little better in wet conditions. Fit and finish goes to Gravely and comfort as well. My 452 with the bagging system was $10600 or so. I qualified for fleet pricing and 0% financing for 4 years. I would suggest you demo any mower your interested in before you make your final decision. Took me like 3 months to make mine! If you go back to the begining of this thread I posted a ton more info and pics. It would benefit you to read through it all...

    Yes I did, and it really helping me with info on the Gravely. I always did like Gravely and Scag but I went with Scag. Now I wanna get the 452. I'll check with my local dealer on the price of the 452. Hopefully I can get a good deal!!!:laugh:

    Well I'm excited. Even though we've had three days of rain and they're showing a chance of rain for the next seven days, my 460 just came in at the dealership. Depending on weather (weather I can cut or not due to rain) I may be picking it up tomorrow afternoon. Then it's shorter deck bolts, full coat of wax, install accessories, and I'm good to go. Just missed the Gravely picture competition buy a couple days!
