    I have a 260M XDZ with the 31hp Kawasaki ordered. It is supposed to arrive tomorrow. I also have a 252M XDZ and a 148M XDZ coming as well. I don't like hydraulic or electric lift decks.

    I've never run Gravelys until now. I was impressed enough with my demo, I ordered these three.:)

    What is the disadvantage to hydraulic lift decks?

    I don't like having to take a hand off the sticks to lift the deck while out in the turf. If I come across something while mowing that I need to lift the deck for, I like being able to just push with my foot and never have to stop.

    Fine ZTR's but the 30 Kohler had issues when it came out, so I would suggest the Kaw.
