I was at my local Gravely dealer today buying a walkbehind and I was talking to the salesman. Throughout talking, he said the 260Z is $7699 w/ 25HP Kaw. I couldn't believe it was that price. I paid $8400 out the door in August of 2003. They have taken some accessories off that used to be standard, but I think it's a smart move. That will attrack a lot of people. The comprabable 25HP/60" deck is close to 9K for most brands isn't it?
