    Yes, you were right. You don't see too many threads about EverRides or Gravely Pro Rides, so I have to speak up a little when one does appear.:)

    Razorblades.

    Who better than someone who owns one or both?
    Do you still have them both?

    I never owned an EverRide...just demo'ed one a couple of times. I was looking at buying one at the time (2007) and started checking out the Lastec mower brand and ultimately bought a Lastec instead. I bought the Gravely Pro Ride in Sept. 2011.

    I (and my helper) use both of them on my accounts, along with the 2 Ingersoll tractors in special applications.

    My bad. I coulda sworn you posted pics of an EverRide and the Pro Ride and said you had one of each now.

    EverRide sure was ahead technology wise. 13MPH back then was awesome, dial adjust deck, pivoting front end etc. etc.

    It was the worst cutting mower in wet grass that I ever owned.

    Just buy a Dixie and adjust the deck up to 6 inches. If that's still not high enough, get the taller Dixie tires and adjust up to 8" if you like. With Dixie's deck mechanism you can adjust the deck right up into the bottom of the mower if you like.

    That sounds like a good feature. Dixie was the first mid mount Z that I demoed way back when. It didn't have any deck over hang for trimming so I went to Walker.
