    new to commerical mowers, as have been using 2165 cub cadet. purchased a new gravely 260z with kawasaki 25hp air cooled engine, 60 in deck and hyd lift. i am new to bigger mowers and thought this machine was a 2007 model but found out later that it was a 2006 model, i gave 8500 dollars for this machine. i love this mower over the old cub cadet but can not help but wonder if i gave too much. do any of you pros know what this mower was worth as curiosity killed the cat?

    You could have had a "V8" - as in a Toro, Exmark, Hustler, etc. for that much money.

    Just my opinion, though. :usflag:

    jtf40 thanks for reply. i was going to buy a hustler until i keep reading that the new decks would not cut without leaving a streak of grass
