    A Gravely Promaster 300 (outfront riding mower) with 20 HP Kohler and 60" deck with hydraulic lift with 497 hours is being offered at $3900. I am told it is a 2000 model.

    Is 20 HP underpowered for 60" mower deck? Was this machine significantly re-designed in later models to address any big problems? Any ideas on what a good value would be?

    A 20 hp engine is somewhat small to run a 60" deck but it really depends on what you will be mowing. In a normal yard that isn't very tall it should be fine. If the grass is overgrown it will bog it down pretty good and youlll really have to slow down to cut through it. I have found this out through experience.
