    A friend of mine is looking for a ztr just like me. I figured id turn to you guys to choose between the hustler fasttrak super-duty 42" and the gravely 34z for light duty, or part time commercial use. Hey wont be using any of the units full time. These are the two he has it down to due to cost. Let me know what you guys think and why. Thanks

    Personally I think quality is not there on the gravelys, my local dealer sells gravely wright and scag and when you look at all of them sitting there the gravelys look like a toy. The pricing on gravely also raises some question too, if it looks cheap and it is cheap price wise it could be assumed that it isn't a good machine.

    remember this machine will be used by 1 person and 1 person only. will not be abused. and i do agree to a point about the if its cheap its not of high quality but i do refer to warranty when buying.

    Yes im going to pick up a bob cat. My buddy is interested in one of these machines due to the size and weight. He wants to stick with a smaller, lighter machine so i thought id get some opinions to help him to decide which is a better buy. Or better machine for that matter.

    I just bought a 25 hp Kaw with the 54" deck Fastrak SD and I love it. Cut is very nice and the levers are real smooth. The only thing I have noticed is when I backup, I can't remember which direction it is but one turns slower than the other. The only other complaint is I wish it would go just a little faster. Other than that it is a very nice machine.
