    Since Gravely has redesigned their standon, and makes commercial mowers for JD, will the redesigned prostance get some green and yellow paint?

    the gravely will not cut as good as the john deere but it will probably handles better. just because they are owned by the same company they are still far apart. just like when it was gravely,Ariens, great dane, everride, john deere, they were all made on the same line (except john deere) but painted different colors. the john deere every part is different than the others. different frame deck etc.
    will have to see how the Gravely works in the wet spring mornings. i loved my great dane but it sucked in the spring, rest of the year great, spent alot of time double and triple cutting and blowing out yards

    really? the frame is different? I know the size is, but I didn't think they were built on different frames. What about lesco? i know for sure that they are running the same thing as Gravely, are they completely phasing those mowers out then?

    Gravely/Ariens is not owned by John Deere. Ariens just has a contract to build some models of mowers for J.D.

    They both aren't exactly the same, nor do they exactly steal each system off each other. If they did the gravely would cut as good as a Deere, and surely it doesn't.
