    What are your opinions on the following mowers? I'm a homeowner with 1.25 acres. My lawn is St. Augustine and Bermuda.

    Hustler Sport 48"- $3,800.00
    Honda GXV-530
    Hydro-Gear EZT
    Rear tires 18"
    Deck: 11 ga welded steel
    Speed: 6 mph
    Warranty: 4 years?

    Gravely ZT XL 48"- $3,900.00
    Kawasaki 24 HP
    Hydro-Gear ZT 2800
    Rear tires 20"
    Deck: 10-ga welded steel
    Speed: 7 mph
    Warranty: 2 years

    Am I missing something? It seems like the Gravely is a much better deal..Any thoughts or opinions? I was leaning towards the Hustler Sport. I'm not sure now. I have also considered Scag and Exmark entry level models~ $5,200.00. I'm not sure if they are much better equipped that the ones I listed above. Thank you for your time and ideas..

    thuiskens1,


    Just my experience. I really wanted the Gravely mower because they had the better hydrostats. I went to 2 different Dealers and both talked me out of the Gravely, both saying the model keeps changing and is still being refined. They both said if I really wanted the ZTR they would order it for me.
