    i'm sorry, i ment i am considering another mower for a big account i just picked up. i will need two mowers, this one a little bigger and better. my zt1640 is really just a homeowner unit w/ 16hp briggs & stratton.

    there is tons of difference i think the exmark is a better unit all the way around much stronger (built better) then any gravely i have seen. i also think you get better service with exmark you should look at there website i think you would like the exmark.
    p.s go try them out give them a test run we did before we got our exmark lazer hp 52" 23hp

    Thank you gr84. Last week I went to the Gravely on tour in Jax. FL. It was pretty good. If price is close I'll go with exmark, from what you are saying and what I have heard I too think exmark is the better way to go! (exmark lazer hp 44'/20hp kohler?) I need no larger than 44' so I can fit in mobil home parks.

    I was going to suggest you look at a Bad Boy if there had been a dealer closer to you.

    Bastrop is just northeast of Monroe.
