    the 252 lists at $8999. i got it out the door with the mulch kit, the chute blocker(installed) and of course tax for $8064. it was a package deal too.. i also ordered a hydro 36 WB. Gravely has a fleet promotion going on..spend over $10K and get 20% off.

    i didnt price a 260 but i dont think they are too much more...the price difference in 2010 was only about $500 to go from the 252 to the 260

    it has the Hydro-Gear ZT-5400 integrated pump and wheel motor system. 13mph ground speed. my dealer says Exmark is switching to these trannies too.

    ...from Hydro-Gear...

    "The ZT-5400 Powertrain® is Hydro-Gear’s most capable transaxle, designed for heavy duty commercial applications. The ZT-5400 Powertrain transaxle features a hefty 16cc variable displacement seven piston pump and a 21cc variable displacement seven piston motor capable of delivering up to 325 ft-lbs. of continuous torque. Power is routed through a mechanical gear reduction with a single 1.375 inch shaft output. The ZT-5400 Powertrain® delivers smooth, infinitely variable speed and bi-directional control in a rugged integrated package."

    That is one awesome machine! Out of curiousity, what is the difference between the ProTurn 152 and 252? My friend has the ProTurn 152, and it looks very similar. I am sure there must be some 'under the hood' differences?

    lukespapa - a lot.
    everything is ratcheted up on the 200's from the 100's
    the hydros are bigger and faster. the 100 series has the zt-3400 i believe.
    for 2010 the 100 series only had half inch deck adjustment. i think now they both have quarter inch increments for 2011
    larger front casters and forks on the 200. the deck is the same on both mowers.
    less fuel capacity in the 100 and a smaller engine. the 152 comes with a 24hp kawa. the 200's have a larger more comfortable operator zone. also the hydros and engine are boxed together and isolated from the operator platform on the 200's. this reduces vibration and lowers the center of gravity on the 200 which means better hillside stability.

    if you compare them side by side the differnces really stand out.

    here is a link to a video about the 200's. i think it is from 2010 but the only thing they changed on the 200's for 2011 was a larger gas tank that meets the new epa requirements. they had to change the venting system on the tanks.

    that is a good looking machine, but i have never oncebeen intersted in gravely. did not like the build of them, was not entirely impressed with the cut either, but it was not bad.

    they have made some changes in the last couple of years
