    So far it has performed well. I just put a swivel wheel sulky on today. Haven't been able to try it out yet though because it's been raining.[​IMG]

    all i can say is SWEET! Gravely builds one hell of a mower, tougher than nails, i'll probaly get something like that with the pro controls though, or a wright stander sweet though. congrats

    I'm hoping that I wont end up wishing I had splurged for the 17hp. So far it's worked well though.

    I think you are going to wish you went for the 17hp.

    That is a good looking machine.

    The only thing that I do not like about the Gravely is the handles. If they had a loop handle I would love to try one out. But I have an old Gravely walk behind and it seems as if my wrist are always being twisted out of the sockets when I mow a hill with it.


    Let us know how you like it and what kind of a job it does when you get to use it.

    Sweet, look into the prosteer's lynyrdskynard, I've been trying them with gear drives and they seem pretty nice so i image they'd be sweet with hydro's.
