I just got quoted $8299 for a 2010 Gravely pro turn 252. I was also quoted $5030 for a 2011 36" hydro WB. I told them I am interested in purchasing both mowers at the same time and within the next month. I would rather have a 2011 - 252 but he said the new model is $8800. I am not sure but these prices sound awfully close to retail to me. On a side note - at the end of last season the same dealer quoted me $7829 on the exact same 52", and $4200 on a 2010 fixed deck 36 " hydro WB. I was thinking of offering $12000 for both mowers. What do you guys think?
