I have a good friend that opened up his own business last year. He sells Big Dog and Bad Boy mowers along with Echo, Shindaiwa and Tanaka handhelds. I bought a Big Dog Diablo from him last year with a 60" cut and 35hp Kawasaki. They are built by Excel who makes Hustler and my mower has the same deck as the old Hustlers (pre VX4) I love the mower and have not had any major issues with it. I am looking to add another mower next season and really like the Gravely Proturn 460 with the air ride and X2 deck. The closest dealer gravely dealer is only 15 minutes from me but they do not have a good rep about taking care of their customers. My gut feeling is to stay loyal to my friend that really takes care of me but I also like the Gravely and I do not want to make my friend mad. What would you do?
