I have a gravely, dixon, and hustler dealer all within 20min of my house, and I'm trying to get pointer's on which mower to get. The dixon spdztr 30" has a great finance plan, unit is small to fit in the corner of my shop and looks like a solid machine. The 1730xl gravely is also nice a lil bigger, engine may be the weaker link? Hustler is the better of the three machine's just more money, and bigger. This unit will be for my personal use only in cutting 3/4 of an acre. what are the worst of these machines and how would the cut compare among them. thanks Craig.
