    the 34 inch gravely Z is sweet. It is built exztremely well, and solid. GRAVELY went above and beyond on this small mower, for gated yards. Dont know how it would work on hills though. I only demo(ed) it at the dealer (FLAT). It seems to be light on the front.

    It's probably because you're trying to post a BMP. Pictures should be in JPG format (or JPEG, same thing).

    I have been operating a Gravely Pro G 32 wb for the last 2 months and have been pleased with it , it's built like a tank and pulls my big rear (190lbs) around without any problems. I use a 2 wheel sulky.I do my work in Florida and it's flat as a board here. If any hills are involved I would go with a 34" Pro G Hydro. I wish I would have got a 34" instead of the 32" it will still get through gates. We have alot of gated yards here in Florida and my main mower is a Gravely 252Z , great mower.:blob2:

    I'm running a Gravely 34"Z.
    Like others have said, it works great on flat areas
    and only so-so on the hills.

    90% of all my accounts have gates and the smaller Z is a great investment for that type of situation.

    I saw a Great Dane that had a split bed that would allow you to raise half to get through average sized gates, but have that extra large cut. I have never used the machine, and others could give you better advice on Great Danes.
