    That's nice.. How did you get a mower before it's out on the market? How's the cut? Likes? Dislikes?

    I was selected by my local dealer to test out this unit. I think it was because I demoed their previous 34" stander. I said I wasnt really a fan of the 34. I thought it had slow ground speed for a stander and would be more interested in a 36.

    Cut is awesome. Collects leaves with minimal to no blow out. Nice lines. Good ground speed. All around a solid machine! No real dislikes. I guess if I had to complain about something, it would be the grass catcher. Wish they would make a canvas bag. I hate those grass gobblers.

    Well I guess next week will be the first time to the dealer for warranty work. went to start my pro stance 52 this morning and nothing happened. Immediate thought was battery. Tested the battery it's good.. called my dealer and told them what it was doing and was told "yes it definitely sounds like warranty work. I wish I could help you more, but we are going out of business." Next closest Gravely dealer to me is 100 miles away... I went with gravely over ferris because of the dealer location. I have a email into gravely and hopefully they could give me any ideas as I know it's something simple to fix.

    Thats to bad , it sounds like a safety switch problem but I would not know where to start on a stander. But I would start by locating the switches.

    I agree. Perhaps the parking brake switch?

    Yeah I have it figured down to the parking brake, left arm controller, or ignition switch. I remember when I first got it thinking I hope nothing goes wrong with the electrics on this thing.... lol
