    I am strongly considering purchasing my first full size zero turn. I've always been a Gravely guy. My first mower was an old 36 inch belt driven walk behind from the 1980's. I then purchased a 148XDZ about 5-6 years ago and love the QOC with the X-Factor deck and the build quality of the unit.

    My accounts are increasing and I'm finding that I could fit a bigger mower into some of my properties and have been giving estimates on larger properties recently.

    Fast forward... I tend to visit the site frequently, but I don't log in or post much. I just read the posts. I found multiple positive reviews and now you guys have got my gears cranking about this mower. I went to the Gravely dealer I've always dealt with and he put me in contact with a Gravely rep so schedule a demo for the morning. I can't beleive the ride quality of this thing. I felt like I was sitting in a Cadillac. I was hooked and wanted to buy one on the first yard. I just wanted to say thanks to all of the guys on here that reviewed the mower it really helped in the decision process.

    Question #1Since I have always dealt with this local dealer I would like to keep giving him my business, but his numbers seem a tad high to me.

    Gravely 460 w/29HP Kohler EFI $9481
    Bagger $1903
    Bagger Installation $150
    Light Kit $125
    Striper $78

    Tax $695
    Financing Fee $125

    Grand total $12,432. 22
    He told me that the Light kit and striper don't qualify for the discount because they are accessories, but he is willing to install them for free.

    I think he can come down a bit on the prices. What do you all think?

    Question #2I currently have a bagging system on my 148XDZ. I bag one day out of the week then just side discharge. I'm thinking about also adding on the Gravely OCDC but will I have to remove it to install the vacuum for the bagging system?

    Question #3Is the Gravely OCDC worth the money ($209) or should I just purchase an aftermarket OCDC?

    Thanks guys! Keep up with the great reviews and pictures. Maybe I'll be adding to the post in a few weeks :cool2:

    The dealer just left me a voicemail letting me know that Gravely will be raising the price of the model I'm thinking about buying by $190 by Sept 1.:rolleyes:

    I think you need to spend a little more money so you can save some :)

    check this - Fleet Program - 20% off

    http://www.gravely.com/pages/fleetsavings/index.html

    "Customer must purchase a minimum of $12,500 MSRP ($10,000 after discount) of Gravely branded products on a single invoice from the dealer"

    according to that i would think the price of light kit and striper would count towards the discount.

    sounds like he's trying to keep you under the minimum so you don't get the 20% off. he probably makes more that way.

    mowers don't usually go up until the next season. next year's models will typically be 5% more than this year's.

    that looks like a pretty good price for a 460 with that EFI kohler. is it a demo? or brand new?

    I love my Gravely OCDC but I don't bag - ever.
