    Who makes the Gravely Stander Mowers? I have heard that it is Great Dane but have not seen any other info on that. Thanks

    Thats what someone told me that Everide, Gravely and Great Dane are all the same but I had never heard anything else about it. Thanks for the help guys.

    Yep, ACI was a great company, I just heard they had an "expert" come in and told them to stockpile inventory, thus leading to the demise of the company. They were then scooped up by Ariens and it should be smooth sailing ahead!

    Thanks for the help. I have been looking at the Stander mowers because I plan on purchasing a new mower next year but the closest Wright dealer is like 50 miles away from me so I wanted to learn more about the other standers available to see if they are decent mowers. I also heard Toro is coming out with a Stander so I might have to check that out.

    I have a Great Dane Super Surfer. Just bought a bagger from my Gravely dealer, it fit perfect. The machines are identical, other than paint.
