I purchased a new Gravely compact pro 44" with the X factor deck. I needed to go through 50" gates on my accounts and at 46.8 with the chute up it gives just under 1.5" on the sides of clearance. It was not cheap, but compared to other commercial ztrs, it was the least expensive. Also, the dealer being 15 minutes from my home helped out my decision. Does anyone have any experience with this model?
