Newer machines are getting computers and circuit boards. Reliability just went south. Repair prices went way north.

Older machines are where its at.

I’ve also been checking out the Gravely ZT HD series, and if that’s a little out of your price range also check it the Ariana IKON-XD

I’m about to drop the hammer on either a Gravely or a new, year old Bobcat.

Hey folks, looking for a 42" deck on a good quality machine. Husqvarna and Exmark have a model, but wondering who else might have a smaller
deck with a good quality build and motor,,,(Kawasaki, Kohler) Thanks for looking. Steve in Ky.
Avoid the Brigs & Stratton engines. My craftsman/Huskvarna has had the compression release lobe wear out twice in 9 years on the 21 hp Platnum engine. Local rental shop /dealer told me the they don’t sell models with B&S engines. I am currently trying to figure out what brand to replace it it’s. Really burns me this happened!
