    Much better mower IMO. I think you should demo both though and see which one suits you best.

    only got 7 lawns. that are only 1/4, use a 21" dont spend thousands of dollars on a mower when your not even going to make it back in a month. atleast thats my oppinion if ya only have 7... just use the 21 and get a good edger, weedwhip, and blower, and once ya get your 15 then step it up a notch. but you say ya have a 42" so if thats the case just use that, no need to buy a 36 for 7 lawns

    I can get 15 in heart beat around here. If I get A 36 my son can use the ztr and I can scully the walk behind in stead of a 21".lookin at smaller commercials next year.

    Go with the Gravely.

    This may be out of the budget, but I'd probably get the Gravely 36" with the Hydro's and the 15hp. It will be about a grand more, but its worth it in the long run. Its the same chassis/hardware used with the larger decks.
    PLUS, that version will pull a Velke, no problem.
