    Sounds just like when I got my 32" Gravely earlier on this year. Needed lots of little things but I got it dirt cheap. It paid for itself very quickly too, going through little gates. I thought the deck on mine was not too good (streaked some, did not chop clippings but did disperse well). Took a grinder to the blade saddle brackets and put on doubles (standard lift) and it cuts great, nice and smooth and discharges farther and smaller peices. definately no way it clumps now (it didn't before either) does not "seem" to take any extra power either, weird but it seems more power effecient actually (I don't get that but oh well). Has a 12hp Briggs and Stratton (maybe will replace with 14hp Kawasaki later on). Now my only "issues" with it are just do to the fact that it's old and worn out...does what I need and does it well, now. definately one of my better business decisions and I've made a few good ones IMHO. Enjoy the new mowers! I'm getting a brand new one tomorrow morning!!!!! 52" Ferris IS1000Z ZTR with independant suspension and 23hp Kawasaki! Will be selling my 52" TTHP (you should have got it instead of the 48" Viking). It has a 17hp Kawasaki V-twin.

    Mark, I would go with a larger trailer for those mowers. I have a 12x6 and if you need to start hauling extra tools with you, I think you will wish you had a 14' trailer.
