I thought I would do a quick review for anyone interested in Standers. I prefer standers over any other machine, I've owned V-Ride, Grandstand, Quick Track, and now the Pro Stance to compare apples to oranges. I had one bad experience with a Gravely in the past and I kind of came to conclusion that there is always one bad apple in the bunch. After reading review after review of positives on the new Pro Stances, I decided to get one for myself to try out. I think Gravely really did their numbers on this machine. I can't say anything as far as reliability after only having a full day under my belt, however, from day one this is my conclusion; 1. Very fine attention to details. The machine is very well thought out, everything seems to work together and fit together perfect. 2. Great features. The machine is loaded with featurs such as hour meter, fuel gauge, air filter service reminder countdown by hours, oil change service countdown my hours, etc. 3. Smooth, Very Smooth. After operating this machine for a day, I swore I was out mowing lawns in a Cadillac. 4. Cut Quality. Last, but not least! The cut quality was simply amazing. I used it today on Weekly and Bi-Weekly lawns, St. Augustine, Bermuda, and over seeded Rye. The Pro Stance out-cuts the 36" V-Ride by a long shot. In my opinion, it has the Turbo Force deck beat on my 36" Grandstand. The cut is perfectly flat, doesn't miss any grass, and disperses the clippings so well I decided I'm not even going to mulch this year with this machine. It just cuts that smooth. Overall, I think Gravely did a great job designing this machine, it's well designed, seems well built, cuts great, looks great, and feels great. My dealer signed me up under some program with the purchase, 48 hour repairs or a free loaner. Couldn't be happier.
