    One of my neighbor's has a Gravely Pro turn 152 with a 24 HP Kawi.
    I have the one year old Scag Tiger Cub with the 19 HP Kawi. on loan from a local dealer.
    We all know how guy's get talking.
    He decides he is going to bring his mower over and show me how good the
    Gravely will do in tall wet grass.
    Keep in mind it had rained everyday in Iowa for five days and everywhere you
    drive there is water standing.
    He takes his out in to some tall praire grass with any and all types of weeds mixed in.
    We both have our mowers set at max. height.
    He kills his in about 30 yards.
    I follow him in about 30 feet over and fifty feet back.
    I keep it running and it never died.
    He can't believe it either so he tries it.
    We both agree after trying the Scag that there really is something to be said about the Velocity Plus deck.
    In the late afternoon we tried mowing some 3.5 in. tall grass that was mostly dry and I could not see any real difference in the quality between the two mowers.

    PS. I'm having a "brain fart". I can't even spell the word TIGER !!!!! RRRRRRRR !!!!!!!!!!!!!
