    well from what i hear on here and in mass there good machines but a b**** to get parts. takes long in the dealer to get it repaired i would go with a gravely. there dependable, nice, compact, and built in the USA.:usflag:

    I've got a Husqvarna 165BT BP blower and have never had a problem with it. Not sure how their other equiptment is but so far I like Husq!!!!!

    The equipment is brand new but the dealer is a couple of hours away. So maintenance would be my problem

    yeah thats gonna be a prob because what if u need your mower despritly and u drive 2 hours then have to wait a couple day or more and then have to drive back after a few days of using a walkbehind.

    The distance to the dealer might be a problem. I have a LZ6127 and I love it. I had to replace a hydro pump around 1000 hours other than that just routine maintenance. It has over 1300 hours on it now and I might replace it in the spring but keep it for a backup.
