    Look what Santa brought. 2002 Steiner 430 Max with 25 hp Kohler and 60" flip up deck. I'm getting a 5' front blade and 48" slip scoop before the end of the year and more attachments will come as needed. This is one very nicely designed and built machine. Had 200 hours and I saved MAJOR bucks over new.............Lynn

    Awesome! A friend (on the IM) has one and loves it to peices, he says it's the best mower he's ever used and best tractor expensive but worth it. He has over 40 collectible garden tractors LOL. He swears up and down it cuts and stripes better than my best pic I sent him, I said get a pic and prove it. When he gets it to me I will post it. Oh yea, you'll like the slip scoop for mulch installations and other landscaping projects! I built one for my garden tractor and it worked great but later made the tractor into a puller so the scoop is rusting.
    Have fun with santa's new sleigh ;) :)

    I gave $9200 including the deck and since I picked it up from out of state, no sales tax. New ones go for over $14,000........Lynn
    I had another pic, but it's too big to load. Sorry

    It looks like I might have to rethink my devotion to Gravely. That is one nice looking machine. May it give you years of trouble free use!

    Hey Lynn?

    Wait till you see how that baby stripes a lawn...it's phenominal! I couldn't believe the job it does until I saw one with my own eyes.

    Good Luck with your new Xmas toy.

    rodfather, so it's true huh? I thought my friend was half blowing off I'm sure it does good but from what he said I thought it's too good to be true. Lynn, maybe you'll use it on your bestest lawns for it's excellent cut/stripe? What else will you do with the mower deck? I wouldn't bushhog with it thats for sure...
