    Any differences to be aware of between a 2006 Gravely 260 Diesel (model #992121) and the 2007 Gravely 260 Diesel (model #992156)?

    Need to know approximately where to place a bid on a 2006 demo with 50 hours.

    Thanks!

    The 2006 has the Parker TG wheel motors where the 2007 has the Parker TF wheel motors. The 2006 has heavier duty wheel motors...aprox. 30% stronger. This was to make the XDZ version 30% stronger or durable than the non XDZ unit in 2006. It looks like they just made the regular non XDZ machine aprox. 30% less durable than it use to be for 2007 in order for the 2007 XDZ to maintain the 30% difference. Bottom line, try to buy a 2006 model.
