Just wanted to let everyone know that I just purchased a new Gravely Compact Pro 34, with factory mulch kit installed. The dealer will get it ready tomorrow, and I will go pick up this Friday around noon. Just wanted to thank all of the posters here for leading me to the right decision. I was down to the Exmark Phazer and the Pro 34. When I found out that the Phazer has been discontinued, and this mower is over $500 less, the decision was really easy. Plus, there are many things I like better about this mower, like the hydraulic motor drives vs transaxle. So thanks again. I will take some pictures and post this weekend. I think the freezing rain will stop by then.
