    Hi Folks!! My first time posting here.I would like to know If any of you are using the Gravely 34Z mower? I have a 9yr old gravely Pro 150 WB with a 50" Deck. I just got started in the mowing Business.But most of my properties will be small lawns.I'm thinking about getting the gravely 34Z Just for the fact I can get it thru all the gates in the back yards. I was just wondering if anyone here has one and how they like it. Thanks for any Info :waving:

    I like it so much, I am selling off my 2002 Gravely 36" proG to acquire a Z34.
    If you know anyone who wants a great walk behind, I'm asking $1650 as the machine has 340 very well maintained hours on it.
    Provided anyone else reads this-PM for further deatails, contact info.

    I have had mine for 2 months and love it. It is not made for steep hills but if your yards are mostly flat its great. Mine has the mulching kit and I love it.
