As you can see by my avatar I run a Gravely, a 252Z to be exact. As you can also see by my thread count I haven't been here long so I am sure this has been previously addressed. I searched the forums for threads about Gravelies and found a few that have had problems but nothing out of the ordinary and usually after a lot of use. Any newer Gravely users (last few years) having more issues than they'd like with their machines? The reason I ask is that we have had warranty work done over a dozen times for various problems since buying the machine new about 18 months ago. Mostly little stuff (ignition wire and seat were both replaced last week) but we did have to have the oil lines replaced a few months ago after it dumped oil all over the muffler and caught fire while mowing a yard. Our dealer always has us back up quickly but any down time no matter how short is too much if you ask me. He even contacted the Gravely rep about it the last time we had to take it in. He is supposed to call us next time the rep is in town so we can meet with him personally. All the repairs have been covered under warranty so far but isn't this a lot of problems considering the machine doesn't even have 250 hours yet? I have heard nothing but good things about Gravely but as I am relatively new to the biz they have not made a good impression on me yet.
