    I've taken my gravely 160Z 25HP Koh to the shop for the second time within 60Hrs. First time after 20hrs one of the deck spindles went out and now I've taken it for the second time and the coil is bad and has to be replaced. Anyone else having problems with their gravely's. I wish I had bought another Exmark Z. Three hundred hrs and no problems.

    Don't blame a engine problem on the mower.

    just luck of the draw, somtimes you get a unit that goes a thousand hours with little or no problems and sometimes it barely makes it out of the service area before it breaks. Dont worry, they should get it straightened out and you can enjoy some trouble free mowing.

    Ditto, Gravely dont make engines, you could have had the same coil problem on the Exmark. I would call the spindle a fluke, but if it happens again, then I would be a little irate.

    280 hours on my 260, no problems at all. no matter what you buy, there is always a lemon somewhere in the bunch. you just happened to get it, don't you feel lucky?
