    I'm thinking....I would go with the gravely. If you run a sulky on a 32" make sure you carry extra drive belts with you. Good luck.

    Gravely mowers are awsome. I can vouch for that. Our Gravely PRO-50 never had a single problem in the 3000+ hours we used it and it still ran when we sold it to a friend. Very well built machines and produces a nice cut.

    i think i agree that the gravely is a better machine. my next question is, do you think its worth $1000. contacted the seller and it has 300 hours on it.

    Apparently, it's going to take more than $1,000 to buy it; "Reserve not met".

    thanks alot craig. now you got me undecided again..:waving:

    gottamow, there aren't any bids so i'm guessing 1000 is his reserve. could be wrong but i think i'm right..
