    Hey Guys-

    The opportunity approached me to purchase a 2010 Gravely ProTurn 252 with 12 hours on it. The machine is mint and only used a few times.

    The seller is asking for $5300. Whats your thoughts on this deal? Im typically a Scag guy and not sure if I should take him up on it.

    I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Gravely, because that is what I run, although not the Pro-Turn, but I don't believe the warranties are transferrable, meaning you would have none. Guess you would just have to compare the price to one off the showroom floor and see if the savings justifies the risk.

    Sounds like he's basically giving it away. I have a 152, and have demoed a 252, great mowers. I wonder why he's selling so cheap, he would have no problem getting more.

    Sounds like a really good deal. JUMP on it if you need/want it.
