by Ron Superb Build Quality A retired neighbor and myself had both been mowing our 1 acre lots for many years with lightly built conventional 42" Murray and 36" MTD riding lawn mowers respectively. Both mowers were cheap and for years got the job done, but being lightly built, almost frail really, both succumbed to age and started giving us both more problems over the years requiring increasingly more frequent repairs. He and I got tired of this and discussed upgrading, and upgrading significantly. My father had purchased a top model 60" Kawasaki-powered Gravely for his 3 acre lot a few years ago and LOVES IT! In fact Mom enjoys mowing with it so much Dad rarely gets a chance to drive it, but they both spoke highly of it and had me test drive it. I was amazed by the beefiness of all the components compared to the thin gauge stamped steel parts on my old MTD mower. So my neighbor and I checked online reviews and prices and each of us were close to purchasing the top residential 52" zero turn model. We went to a local dealer who let us test drive an entry level commercial Pro Turn unit. They worked with us on price and we both ended up buying 52" Kawasaki-powered (commercial) Pro Turn units and had them delivered a few days later. The Gravely rep was knowledgeable, friendly, showed us all the operations during our test drive sessions, and not one moment did we feel hurried or pressured. I have to say the quality of build with thick gauge steel everywhere, stout, meaty components (nothing flimsy or under built ANYWHERE!), and the Gravely name were nearly enough for us to purchase the units but the sales rep. at D. W. OGG Equipment in Frederick, MD. sealed the deal. My neighbor and I couldn't be more happy with our Pro Turns. Yeah, it's a bit overkill for our 1 acre lots but we've both cut our mowing times in half and more importantly these are going to provide us both with many years of trouble-free service. No more welding stress cracks on flimsy stamped steel parts or REPEATEDLY replacing under built parts. Thank you Gravely for making a rock solid product and for your knowledgeable, helpful, no-pressure, no bs, sales reps. My neighbor and I enjoy keeping our places looking nice. Our Gravely's are the right tool for the job, and their power and speed is more than up to the task. Our lots are across the street from each other and are two houses from the entrance to our neighborhood so everyone that comes and goes sees one or both of our bright orange Gravely's at work frequently during the mowing season. Zero regrets from either of us! I just bought a set of headlights for mine for late evening mowing. And during the installation I found a connector on the existing harness ready and waiting which helped make the installation easy. I plugged in the lights harness, routed the wires, and with a couple bolts and a few zip ties later I had headlights at the flip of a toggle switch. The toggle switch was ALSO thought out. All I had to do was cut the plastic on the existing control panel and install the toggle switch. Just more evidence that someone thought this out. We're both impressed and very happy with our Gravelys! Nice job guys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nick Chute Great machine. Cuts well, great on gas and comfortable. Only two draw backs are the chute grass deflector mounts on top of the deck. The nut vibrates loose and I have lost the nut so I can't mount the chute. Also it should have a 2nd gas tank like the old 152z. Great machine, great product and very reliable. I would recommend to anybody. September 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Denis tough and smooth I have had Gravely machines and this one as the others performs great. I have a Lawn Care business and the Pro Turn handles the relentless hours of work we put it through every day. September 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tim Great features! Well thought out! This was my first commercial ride on mower purchase. Out of exmark, John Deere, Toro and gravely. The gravely stood out to me as the most thought out and best design. I love pretty much everything about it. My only complaint, which really isn't a complaint is the seat could use one more notch forward (I have short legs). I can reach the deck raise fine, but one more notch would be perfect. Aside from that everything is working beautifully and I plan on having this mower or a gravely mower or two in my lineup for a long time. Extra selling point is they are made a few hours away on the other side of the state in Wi! September 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Daniel Awesome! Love the way it handles, the way it works, and the way it cut the time I spend on the mower.... However, now I mow two extra lawns, due to the amount of fun I have when I mow!!A Gravely Customer for life!! September 14, 2014

by Greg Speed and Agility The power and speed of my Pro a Turn 60 along with the zero turn characteristics allow me to cut my mowing time by at least 50%. My Husqvarna tractor style mower lacked all the positive points my Gravely brings to the table .I do find that the oil filter is located in a less than user friendly position but feel the rest of the machine is well thought out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paul Very durable, easy to use Used my pro-turn for 2 cutting seasons now , had a problem with the Kawasaki engine but was promptly taken care of by dealer. other than that I have had no other issues or complaints with this mower, its not as heavy and bulky as other mowers like the John Deere mowers which makes maneuvering much easier. i use this mower as a home owner that cuts several acres and it has cut my mowing time in half. i would definitely purchase another Gravely mower. MADE IN USA. August 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy Impressive equipment, excellent cut I'm very impressed with the durability, performance and ease of operation of my Gravely. In addition, it consistently provides a beautiful cut and does so at a very high rate of speed. August 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Larry All the mower I need. The Pro Turn 60 is all I expected in a mower. Fast, ample power, and smooth cutting. August 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jeff Good sturdy machine I have used it for about a year to maintain 5-6 acres of grass. Building a house on the property so sometimes the grass (hay) goes several weeks between mowing. The machine handles it fine even when the grass is damp. The best thing I like about this mower is that my wife likes to use it. August 28, 2014
