Got a quote in today from my Gravely dealer. It will cost $1,100 for one (about $400 more than what I thought one would cost). Can only be used on new or fine quality lawns, which I knew anyway. I just don't know about $1,100. They need to make push mowers with stripers on them. I sure you could get some and wel/bolt them on but I don't really know about all that.

I'm also waiting to hear from an actual user.

The brochure says "...Honda engine....effortlessly propels the superstriper accross the terrain".

So is it self-propelled or truely "push" ?

The Harriet mower imported through Seagrove (same people importing the Allen brand hover mower) is a much, much, much better mower than the Gravely unit.
I used the Harriet's to mow the par 3 tees on a golf course I maintained because with all of the divot holes and sand necessary to fill I noticed accelerated wear on my tri-plexes bed knives.
Cuts to 1/2" very well, the huge rear roller stripes well, is self propelled and the rotary blade sharpens just like any other 21" blade. Plus it bags and the Gravely doesn't, or at least the one I demo'd didn't have that option.

. Company has only been around since '01 or '02 I think.
What company, Eastman?
This company, Eastman, has been marketing commercial mowers for at least 40 years I have seen. Probably one heck of a lot longer than that.
Actually longer as I have an old photograph from when I was either three or four years of age with an Eastman and it was at least ten years old then.
The Harriet line of mowers is UK based, and although I do not know exactly how long they have been around, I do know it has been at least 25 years.
I know from first hand commercial experience these mowers are well built and extremely durable,
