    You dealt with the wrong company. I bought the SD when the salesman (well, sales manager) met me at 2 Grand below MSRP. I also bought out-of-state so that meant no sales tax.:)
    Most people live to work.....I work to live.

    Very weak deck components on a very strong fabricated deck..makes no sense...trust me I learned this the hard way.I myself was very didisappointed with this machine... to the point I returned it for a real Hustler...Fastrak Super Duty and if there's a such thing as being in love with a lawn mower I certainly am lol...Hustler fan through and through!!!

    Best I can remember, it was the 54" FasTrak SD and he wanted $7,000 plus taxes. I got my Gravely Pro-Turn 152 for $6,800 out-the-door. I've never looked back:0)

    Wow...I gave $5900 for my Fastrak SD...out the door..don't blame you..you ended up with a good mower..Gravely makes a fantastic ZT as well...I looked at the same mower you have and I liked several things about it some better than my SD but after my experience with the Raptor...I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER ZT WITHOUT A CHAIN HUNG DECK...However the deck components on your Gravely look plenty strong and beefy...especially when comparing them to the Raptor

    Looking at the raptor:/ says the blade tip speed is 16700, seems slow compared to most.
    What's the cut like?
