    i am considering purchasing a gravely promaster 200 series Z rider. the price seems like a great deal so i was wondering if anyone could tell me a little about the history of the model and how it holds up. are there any problems with cutting or driving it??

    This is one of the very first Z's that Gravely put out, and was quickly withdrawn with lack of sales due to performance. This should NOT in any way be mistaken for the newer Z models like the 260. They are not even CLOSE to the same machine, and perform accordingly. You don't see many of these machine in the field, and it's for a reason. I know 2 others that owned these machines, and both had the same conclusion. I think I would pass it up, and see what else is out there. You are going to want cut quality down the road.

    I totally agree with Runner and I would pass on this mower and keep looking for a much newer Gravely. This was not there best piece of work and the company has made a lot of changes/improvements since then.

    If you have a local dealer try the new Great Dane z riders...

    they are very nice at good prices!! Heavy built!

    I bought a 61" 25 HP Chariot for $7,399!!

    Hope this helps!
