    Well, I have $2400 saved to get my first commercial grade mower. I will have the rest in a matter of days. I have narrowed it down to these two mowers. The gravely is $2600 at my dealer and I do not know the price on the Exmark (Anyone know the price range for the Exmark?). I really like the Gravely. It looks to be built the best and strongest of any of the popular commercial brands. I plan to get the ECS because I do not like the feel of the pistol grips. Should I get the mulch kit right away or can it wait a little until I can really afford it? Will the cut look like crap if I just side discharge? Also, Should I get a sulky/velky as soon as possible or should I just start out walking? I plan to pay for my new mower with cash, do you think I will be able to get the dealers to come down any in price if I offer them cash? Please give me any info you can.

    Thank you...:)
