    I can get a Gravely 152M 2007 & a Hustler FastTrak Super Duty 48" 2008 both new for the same price ($6,000). Which is the better mower?

    We love our Gravely mowers. Think about getting the hydraulic deck lift. You'll be glad you did. These mowers are tough.

    I'd take the gravely as well. That's a good price for it as there are no changes from 2007 to 2008 on that model. As for the hydraulic lift, I don't think it's available on that model. If I remember correctly lthe only 100 series you can get the hydraulic lift on is the 148XDZ.

    The model I was looking at was not an XDZ do you still feel the same way about it over the hustler?

    We don't run Hustlers, so I can't give you any reliable opinion on them. I can only tell you that the Gravely's are awesome machines. We have used the 152Zs and 148Zs and we have one 34Z for backyards with 36" gates. We also run Exmark Lazers. My guys are about evenly split in their preferences between the Exmarks and the Gravelys. Overall, I would rate the Gravely cut on a par with the Exmark.

    The question was concerning $6,000 machines, only. They might not be able to afford a lazer at this time. :usflag:
