    This is a 400 hour update on the Gravely ZT HD. So far so good...I guess. Problems have included: blown coil, bad fuel line, sticking choke due to an internal problem and a flat tire. All replaced under warranty!
    The mower overall is performing well, still wish it held hills better and had a little more back end weight to help with turning issues. Still cuts excellent, even mow in the rain with no clumps. Maintenance is easy and well laid out.
    One MAJOR downside is the ride, its a back killer and because of that no one really wants to use it. If they put a suspension seat on it the problem would be solved. Also fuel consumption is excellent and have seen a nice reduction in overhead.
    And this IS a commercial mower even if it doesn't look like one. Overall I don't really see it lasting much past 1,000hrs but will update as it hits that mark.
