cant believe im actually thinking of something other than exmark or scag. but, i have noticed an ad down here for a Great Dane 52" hydro wb with pistol grips for $3000, NEW. wondering if anyone has any experience with this mower. also, was looking at the Gravely website the other day and noticed their big boy wb, 52"/17hp, claims an 8.5mph ground speed and they say it will cut at that speed too. let me know if these are worth looking at or if i should just smack myself for thinking of something other than exmark or scag.
