    This will be my first year in the business. Already got the legal stuff and the insurance taken care of. Im debating between a Lesco or a Gravely wb. I went to a Gravely dealer today and tried out the 36 inch belt drive pro steer, seemed like a great mower. The guy said he would sell it to me for $2550 (retails for $2999). My question is do you guys think this is a good price and does anyone have any experiences with this mower. Thanks in advance.

    Gravely mowers are built very well! That deal sounds good! What kind of engine on it?
