My gravely Rep called me up and ask me if I was still looking for a hydro 36" deck and I said yes, you got one. He told me this one has been hauled around to shows and a little scratched up. He told me 2850.00 and I told him, "it ain't here yet". When he got it to my shop I was surprised. It looked as tho it came off of the show room floor and has an hour meter with 4 hours on it. Now don't knock me guys because I have been an Exmark man from the word go but to save money I will change brands. I was impressed I have to say. You put those Gravelys up next to the Exmark and I can see why now everyone calls them tanks. But going to give this bad boy a shot, I just hope it mulches as good as the Exmark. The Rep. told me to wait on the mulch kit because Gravely is coming out with a better design, so I will wait.
