    I know you all hate these threads...if so, move on. But, for the people who have some sound advice, which would you get?

    Used Gravely..about 6 months old with 37 hours. 252z with 25 kawasaki, hydro lift deck, suspension seat...13 mph!!!

    New Hustler..mini Z 52" with 19 kawasaki

    almost the same amount of money give or take 50 bucks.

    already have a scag...they are a lot more money.

    its going to be either the gravely or the hustler...not exmark, toro, scag, dixie....unless i ran into a deal i couldn't turn down ofcourse.

    If the Gravely has the x-factor deck I would go with that one. Just my twin pennies.

    is there a reason for that statement?

    almost positive it has the x factor.

    If you are going to be bagging with it get the gravely. If you don't intend to bag get the hustler with a 19 you still might have to slow down some on the thick lawns. In my opinion a 52" deck needs at least 23HP and 25hp or more if bagging.

    Gravely. The hustler will cause you to slow down in the thick stuff or when wet. The extra hp on the gravely will come in handy.
