Is this a good Trade? 1 for 2

    I have a Gravely 34Z with a mulching kit and has 30 hrs. on it. I like the machine it's just that I am 255 pounds and the mower is close to a thousand pounds so that's a lot of pounds per square inch on those small tires. I'm starting to see my tire marks (more like trenches) from the lawns I am doing over and over again. I tried switching up the mower pattern but I just make more trenches and ruts. I went to a mower shop to ask about a trade and he offered me one Bunton 48ich Hydro with velky that's two years old and has no hour meter and has a 13hp or 14hp Honda pull start engine and a brand new 36inch Gravely Pro Steer Belt Drive WB. 2 for 1 does that sound like a good deal to you? Any advise would help, thanks. Dud

    Yup, sounds like a good deal... to make it better, lose the velky & about 45 or so lbs. while you walk. I can't imagine why anyone would want a rider less than 48". I don't even fully understand a 48" rider either.
