would love to read input on this because I have all two exmark mowers and I know a guy that has a gravely zero turn and a mutual friend of ours said that gravely is top of the line. I thought exmark was top of the line.

FYI, the mutual friend has at least three exmark machines that I know of and I've never known or seen him with a gravely, or anywhere near one for that matter.

What does your friend say about why he likes them so much? It would be interesting to hear his view point.

Exmark by far. Owned many different makes of mowers and the Ex is absolutely the best.

exmark by far and i would look into the diesel exmark. I cut with a 60 and a 72 inch deck and the diesel is just a tank and would do anything you want it to do. But seriously look into the diesel....little more money but way worth it.

This is what I have been told. I am in Birmingham, Al and Gravely is supposedly really big here on the East Coast. I went to a Toro dealer who also sells Gravely. I asked the same question about what is better... eXmark or Gravely. I was actually told that Gravely is who makes eXmark and both are great but Gravely are even better.

I am no expert that is just what I was told. I am pretty sure I will be buying the new Gravely 48" HD

Also from what I am seeing by everyones replies is that eXmark is a great mower and you probably can't go wrong. Everybody swears by them. However, all of these people replying have probably never owned a Gravely and really don't seem to know. I hear really good things about both

TORO makes Exmark not Gravely... Gravely part of Arens Great Dane and Everride. The cut quality is due to setup whatever dealer does the best setup or if a dealer does anything at all to check the setup in cases where nobody else does is the best unit out. I can guarantee that if I setup a Scag, Exmark, Bobcat or Hustler you can not tell the difference in the cut.
