Dealer talked me into going with the HD series and I'm Glad he did! If your're new to ZTs it's going to take a bit to get used to. They are FAST and NIMBLE! Chews through grass that my old Deere would struggle with.
Downside: We live in SE Michigan, Clay soil. With the factory tires traction is non-exsistant if the ground is even a little moist. Had to pull myself out about 5-6 times on the first mow of the season :-(
Gravely, How about offering some better tires for those of us who aren't mowing golf courses!?

    Comments about Gravely ZT HD 44 Zero Turn Mower:

    I've got a 2 1/2 acre yard that is rough! A lot of trees, hilly, muddy, not stuff you want to mow. I was using a John deer tractor and the front axle broke in half. I was looking at a Toro time utter for the price, but after the John deer broke in half I decided I needed a beefier model rather than replace the mower in 2 years. I have 20 hours on it and it has been awesome. Cut my time 75 percent between mowing faster (and much higher quality) and cutting way down on my weed eating. My first mow should have been a commercial for gravely. A lot of brush and hills. No problems.

      went from a snapper z-rider to a zt hd 44 inch gravely. like going from a model a ford to a new Raptor. much smoother cut and a lot faster. probably will add a mulcher later. transmissions are super smooth and steering is very low effort. does not seem to spin the inside tire as much at the snapper did.

      I bought the ZT HD Zero turn mower July 2013 to mow two acres. It takes approximately an hour to do which has cut my mowing by three hours. Love this machine and would reccommend to any one with small residental acreage.

      I bought HD 48 last summer when I moved into a house that had a 2.25 acre lot. Although I only have 17 hours on the mower, it has performed as advertised, AWESOME. I debated on getting a Gravely or Exmark and after talking to some friends who had both, my decision was easy. I'm not putting down Exmark, but I went to the Exmark dealer and the Gravely dealer and asked alot of questions. Hands down I am very happy with my Gravely ZT HD 48.

      The mower is really good on flat areas and does an excellent job on the grass. I do not like how it handles on wet grass or just thick grass. It tends to spin out of control. Especially if there is any sort of incline. It does cut my mowing time by about half. But I do have to use another mower to do around my pond. As I do not trust that the mower will not spin out of control and into the pond. Which still does not distract from how well it cuts the grass.

        Comments about Gravely ZT HD 48 Zero Turn Mower:

        We have owned 2 lawn tractors over the last few years and our rough terrain has managed to destroy both of them. We purchased a Graveley HD because of its strength and ease of use. It hasnt let us down. Setting the cut height to 5" gets us through the rough stuff without touching stumps and rocks but gives us a nice finish to allow the grass to grow. In short, this is one tough mower.

            Comments about Gravely ZT HD 48 Zero Turn Mower:

            I bought my Gravely ZT HD 48 with the Kawasaki engine at Empire Seed Company in Temple Texas. Kayea there was really helpfull and made the whole process really easy, I called to make sure that they had the one I wanted and they did but they had to uncrate it and get it ready, they had it ready by the time I got there. I had already sent her all the paperwork she needed so with tech assisted familiarization, test drive and paperwork, I was in and out in about 45 minutes.
            I went from a John Deere LA115 tractor with a 42in deck to the 48in ZT HD. We have had an extreme amount of rain here in Texas so that means our grass has grown at insane rates. On my yard it cut my mowing time at least by half and my yard is not the levelest but with the frame being so much stiffer compared to my old mower I have alot less scalping just because the frame is not flexxing. We also have a family friend who is not capable of mowing her 1.2 acre yard and with all the rain some parts of her lawn were over 3 feet tall which it cut through very easy of course with it being that tall I had to go over it twice which was no big deal, alot of times even with a big brush hog you have to go over it twice when the grass is that tall.
            I just did my first oil change at 8hrs as recomended, with the oil and filter that the dealer provided. Yes this mower is more than I wanted to spend but I test drove a few regular residential zero turns before this one and none came close to the quality of the Gravely ZT HD. I went with the HD because we do occasionally help friends with thier lawns because of heath reasons and because it has a commercial grade deck instead of a stamped deck like other manufaturers.
            So far it rates up there with the best purchases ever, even at the price that they ask for this mower in my opion it is well worth it if you have any size to your yard.

            I purchased my Gravely ZT HD 48" cut in October 2012. I wanted to try it first before writing a review. The mower is well built and durable. I cut approximately 4 acres each week. (My 1.5 and my mothers 2.5) I have pruchased john deere and cub cadet mowers in the past. The Gravely beats them all. Extremely satisfied.

              I just mowed my field in front of the house about 4. 5 acres of uneven ground. What used to take 4 hours with 2 =42 in yard tractors. Took 2.8 hours with 1 =52 in zero turn. Wish I would have bought one years ago. Would recommend to all my friends. I grew up in a family with a part time business mowing lawns with a push mower will never turn back.

                  Have had this mower 4 years now. It has 150 hours on it. So far have only had to replace the starter solenoid. Nothing else has failed. It still cuts great, deck holds up well, engine performs flawless. It has been serviced by me , including the hydro filter changes. It still has a bit of grass blowout in the front if you cut above 3 inches. Below that its smooth no blowout. Still love the machine.

                        We bought the ZTHD with a 52 inch deck and a 23 horsepower kawasaki engine. Our lawn care business was growing and we were in need of a zero turn riding mower. We weren't looking to spend a fortune and this machine met all of our needs. Professional features without the huge price tag. We perfer kawasaki engines, we've had good luck with them and we haven't heard the best things about Kohler. In our market Exmark, Hustler, & Gravely are the three main brands. All three offered a quality product but we chose Gravely because of the great customer service we received from the dealer. They make sure we are always taken care of.

                            The ZT HD 52 is the best mower I have ever owned. It has cut my mowing time in half and because of the comfortable ride I am not tired when I am done, We use the mower to cut two acres around the house and now my wife can hardly wait for the weekend to mow, This is a great American made mower that is dependable, well made and easy to maintain. Guys before you buy a mower you need to check the Gravely out.

                              I got this almost 2 years ago and I have no idea why I didn't do this a lot sooner! I have the ZT HD 52 and I absolutely love it. My yard is a little over an acre and I have 4 to 5 other yards I take care of too. This thing cuts fast, even and never slows down. It's the first zero turn I've ever owned and if I ever get another one it'll definitely be another Gravely. I can't say enough good about it. I used to think I liked mowing my yard but now I LOVE mowing all the yards I can find. If you want a really good mower this one won't disappoint you.

                              First off I want everyone to know that I have done my research. My wife asked me if I was going to submit my data to Consumer Reports... I wanted this mower to be the last one I purchased. I have looked at SCAG, Hustler, Cub Cadet, Husky, Exmark, Simplicity, John Deere, Dixie Chopper, Toro and the list goes on...

                              As I searched for the best manufactured machine for the best money I learned and I learned... All the manufactures will use components from the same or similar manufactures such as engines, the trans axles are primarily manufactured by Hydro-Gear etc... Understand that the best for the money will never be the cheapest. I also looked at the companies behind the mowers and continued to learn...

                              Overall I looked at many machines... I demoed many machines... In the running with my criteria I ended up with the following brands... Order not relating to preference.

                              Dixie
                              Gravely
                              SCAG
                              Hustler

                              Without getting into the process of evaluation this is what I found to be the deciding feature requirements...

                              Kawasaki Power
                              24HP will be plenty for a 48" machine
                              Trans Axle minimum: Hydrogear ZT-3100
                              Mower Deck: Minimum of a 10 Gauge fabbed deck great mowing capacity not overkill for a homeowner.
                              Must be able to push snow if desired.
                              Warranty: Minimum of 3 yr.
                              Dealership... What if I had to deal with the what if...

                              The SCAG Dealer was the closet in the overall, but I feel it was over priced for the same HG ZT-3100 and also power by a BS engine... Thats Briggs and Stratton! BS not intended but by far the last on my list... They also offer the Kawasaki 600cc engine... $1100 more for the 48" unit with this is engine that is 126cc smaller and the HP is unpublished. The deck was a little thicker, but I felt overkill for a homeowner which has no additional warranty such as the Gravely

                              Dixie Chopper was a great machine, but I couldn't justify the cost for what I was getting. The Briggs Pro engine (again not my favorite) and the HG ZT-3100 transmission same as the Gravely... Better Warranty, but much higher in cost... Same dealer as the Gravely

                              The Hustler dealership seamed untrained on product and just wanted to jam a mower out the door. I felt that there was an urgency as if he needed to sell a unit just to stay in business. I like the product but again higher in cost for the same or similar product. Warranty was a year better, but I was very concerned with the dealers existence in that extra year...

                              Gravely 48" ZT HD had all the features in a single package that I was looking for and I felt that it came at a fair price. And after all the facts and information was entered it came down to the dealer, salesman, and their shop. I felt that the Gravely dealer was had it together the best of all. I felt confident in with the whole package.

                              I will also add that I have been in sales for 25 years and now manage several states. I told all the dealers that I enjoyed looking at my lawn not mowing it... My lawn wasn't that big... I didn't need a ZTR I wanted a ZTR, I wanted to be done as quick as possible... With the proper manual I could rebuild any engine that I wanted to, but I didn't want to wrench on a mower... I want a high quality mower that would last...

                              None of the dealers that I had visited had any idea that they we undergoing an evaluation by an experienced salesperson... I was just a home owner that wanted a great product for a fair price. Most noticed that I had done my homework and was knowledgeable about what I was looking for. There was only one dealer seamed like they cared and wanted to build a relationship. It was 100 degrees and not a lot of grass was growing. They were only one dealer offer me a pepsi while I was talking to them... Who knew that $. 50 that pepsi would sell a mower! That being said I bought a relationship and they through in a Gravely mower... I want to add that I never met Ryan or knew the family before, but I imagine that Ryan's great grandfather would be proud to know that his great grandsons is doing business as he did when they started, With a handshake and trust! I don't know many that can say that. I made the purchase of the Gravely 48"ZT HD at Schaefer's Indiana Turf.

                              Recenntly purchased a used ZT 60HD after have my Ferris 60" for years, the gravely has no traction what so ever. If you get on any grade of a hill you might as well forget it, your going down the hill. The mower had 13 hrs on it when I bought it and cuts and runs great.

                              I have now mowed with it for 50 hours. The other day I was mowing a waterway which hadn't been mowed for over three weeks. Grass was at least 8" in places and wet. I mowed full speed never bogged the engine a bit. I couldn't even do that on a couple of high dollar commercial mowers I had previously owned. I don't know how Gravely has done that but it amazed me.

                                Planning to purchase a 2nd ZT HD 60 this Spring

                                Comments about Gravely ZT HD 60 Zero Turn Mower:

                                I researched various brands and compared features, prices and comments from professionals in the business and decided to purchase a Gravely 3-years ago from Hope Mills Saw and Mowers. I was mowing with a Ford 3000 tractor and 72" estate mower prior to purchasing the Gravely and prior to that numerous lawn/garden tractors. I mow around 12 acres of grass between my home, my parents home and our rental homes. I've cut grass beside the full size Ford tractor and estate mower and we're running at about the same ground speed, however, I leave him behind after just one zero turn and can finish my mowing sooner with the Gravely than with the tractor. What use to take all day Saturday to cut with 3 lawn/garden tractors (2-MTD's with 48" decks, 1-Craftsman with 46" deck), I can finish in about 3.5 to 4 hours or less. I can cut more grass on less fuel than either the Ford tractor or the 3 lawn tractors. I also bought a new trimmer when I purchased this mower, however, due to the cutting path of the Gravely, I've reduced a great deal of trimming. I've had no problems with the mower since I purchased it and I change the fluids as listed in the manual and by the build in reminder on the hour meter. The Spring of 2016 purchase will be another ZT HD 60" with the upgraded seat base, the grass catcher system for mainly leaf collection in the fall and the hitch, (had to ride the lawn tractor to pull the aerator this fall, it was like watching paint dry).

                                I purchased my new ZT HD 60" 3 weeks ago and it mows great. There is one thing you must consider when purchasing this mower: If you have hills, be wary....it slides all over the place. You will have to go very slowly downhill....it will start sliding and will not turn. If there's something in your way, such as a fence, rock wall, etc. this could be an issue. Going uphill isn't an issue at all....it's the downhill that's a problem. So far, I haven't been able to locate different tires that would grip better. This happens in dry grass and especially damp. The hill grade is fairly tame, so it's kinda disappointing. To get around this issue, I just use my old John Deere L110 for the side of the house where the hills are....no biggie. Other than that, it's a fantastic mower....you'll love it on the flats

                                I feel compelled to write a review for this mower after spending a few hours online reading reviews of this before I made my purchase. I bought the ZT 60 HD. I am coming off of a Cub Cadet z-Force 50. I must say the drives on the Gravely are so smooth and powerful. I want to address the elephant in the room with the reviews that state this thing is bad on hills or slopes. I have a few steep long grades as my house sits up on a hill and the ZT HD handled the hills so effortlessly that I was jumping up and down in my seat. My old mower would dart down the hill and not be able to stop. Now it is the nature of any zero turn to handle this way but the Gravely handled better than expected. I did have a major problem in my ditch. The exhaust cage is too far out and when I went to go up the ditch it got jammed in the grass and the drive wheels were both suspended in the air. Aside from the minor learning curve. This mower is fantastic!
