IMHO i prefer the Simplicity, cant beat that full width roller for striping and the free floating deck

also like the Deere, only downside is the slow blade tip speed.

I demoed a Gravely 260 series a week ago. I have no experience with Exmark, JD, Hustler because I'm new, but I sure was impressed with the Gravely. The only thing I didn't like was the price. $9300...ouch. Good luck.

Breck :waving:

Please, He is talking about a commercial machine. I run Scag's, they have been the best bet yet.

ever stop to think that someone might not be able to afford a Scag right off the bat, maybe buy something to get you through for a year or two before you go out and spend 8 or 9 thousand dollars

They were $10,000 machines actually. It is a commercial machine with commercial parts. I doubt you will be in the buisness in 2-3 years. :)
