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 $1100 more for the 48" unit with this is engine that is 126cc smaller and the HP is unpublished.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.

    Comments about Gravely ZT HD 60 Zero Turn Mower:

    I have been mowing grass for over 50 years. During this time I have owned or used a multitude of machines from all major manufacturers. The Gravely HD 60 is the best machine I've ever used. There is one must have if you are considering a purchase - GET THE KAWASAKI ENGINE. The Kawasaki is a pleasure to operate and maintain. I have spent countless hours trying to maintain Briggs and Koehler. The Kawasaki has been a pleasure and put the fun back into mowing instead of having to work on the others all the time. I mow 10 acres every week and this mower doesn't even hiccup. Oil change is easy and best air filter setup I've ever had.

      Comments about Gravely ZT HD 60 Zero Turn Mower:

      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

        By 

        from Fayetteville, NC

        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).

        Comments about Gravely ZT HD 60 Zero Turn Mower:

        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 went from a 42 inch Dixon mowing about 3 acres to this beast. This thing is a Cadillac compared to what I had before. This is the first brand new mower that I have ever bought and I am glad I went with gravely. I love the large rear tires along with the large front tires. Overall I am very happy with this mower. I love the tough welded deck on this thing. The only thing I don't like about this is you can't buy an air ride seat for this model. My yard is a bit bumpy so I wish they had that option but it is not a deal breaker. I would definitely recommend this mower to others.

        I have two 52" ZTR Mowers and 5 acres of my own I cut every week plus 2-5 acres of My neighbors that I cut several times a season. The blades are an absolute pain in the rear end to change. My 1st ZTR is 5 yrs.old and has required over $2000 in repairs. The deck pullies ,clutch,and crankshaft had to be replaced. The gravely stickers on the side of the gas tank held up better .2nd mower with 18 hrs.on it already in the shop for transmission shift lever issues .When they run they are Awesome.

          This is truly an amazing zero-turn. I was in the market for one for about 3 months and I did a lot of research. I narrowed it down to 5 mowers and then started digging really deep. The Gravely ZT HD 52 was above and beyond the others in terms of quality and build. I cut about 4 acres with this machine and it is amazing. I cut about 3.5 hours quicker than with my old rider and the quality of the cut is ten-fold better. This is a work horse of a lawn mower.

            It was like Gravely read my mind with this redesigned ZT-HD. Two things I wanted that the older model didn't have were larger and wider rear tires and roll over protection. This kept me from pulling the trigger last season. The cut is beautiful and even.

                          I have two 52" ZTR Mowers and 5 acres of my own I cut every week plus 2-5 acres of My neighbors that I cut several times a season. The blades are an absolute pain in the rear end to change. My 1st ZTR is 5 yrs.old and has required over $2000 in repairs. The deck pullies ,clutch,and crankshaft had to be replaced. The gravely stickers on the side of the gas tank held up better .2nd mower with 18 hrs.on it already in the shop for transmission shift lever issues .When they run they are Awesome.

                            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.

                            Decided to purchase a zero turn to replace a cub tractor that I was never really happy with. Looked at 6 different manufactures in this price range and after comparing warranty, construction and engines felt the Gravely HD 48 definitely stood out from the rest. This mower has reduced my cutting time by nearly half ! My yard is far from being a manicured golf course . The HD 48 with it's larger tires and heavy duty construction handles my uneven terrain flawlessly without​ out scalping. The number of settings for deck hight definitely help with this . If you're looking for a zero turn with quality construction, that if maintained properly should last decades definitely check out Gravely. I'm​ glad I did !

                                    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.

                                        I bought this mower in April 2014 form Musgrave Equipment Co. Quality machine at every weld. Durable and fast. I'm 6'1" and the frame is a just a little short for a tall operator, but its not an issue.

                                        I was in the market earlier this year for my first ZT mower for my 3.5 acre residential lot. My property is "rugged" to say the least - lots of elevation changes, trees, rocks, and rough areas. Not the manicured golf course-like property they typically show in tractor ads. After months of research and visits to local dealers, my wife and were about to pull the trigger on a Hustler Raptor SD. On a last-minute lark, we visited a dealer at a neighboring town that carried Gravely, Ariens, Toro, and Ferris, non of which we had looked at before. After several questions, the dealer pointed us at the new 2017 Gravely HD. This was a big step up feature-wise from the Raptor SD - more comparable to the Hustler Fastrak, but about $600 less expensive than the Fastrak promotion that was going on at the time. Kawasaki engine, very heavy duty frame, 10 gauge deck, 22x10 drive tires, ROPS capable, HydroGear 3100 commercial transmission. We were sold, adding a promotional package that included ROPS, lights, and hitch for another $200.

                                        I have not been using this unit for very long, so cannot speak to long-term reliability/durability. Howerver, it has more than exceeded my expectations performance-wise. Outstanding speed, power, traction, maneuverability, and cut quality. I am very impressed. I am really surprised these things are not more popular than they are, given I don't see much on the market that competes feature and reputation-wise with this particular model at this price point.

                                        One note of caution. While the ROPS provides an added layer of protection (I have a 10' deep dry creek that runs across the front of my property, which I steer clear of), it can also be a hazard in itself. On her first day mowing my wife caught the roll bar on an overhanging tree branch, and almost sent the unit over backwards. We now mow all the open areas of our property with ROPS and seatbelt in place, and then lower the roll bar to mow under low hanging trees.

                                        I cut about 5-6 yards for close friends and family for extra income. I purchased this mower because it was built like a commercial mower without the huge price tag (or so I thought). I bought it new off the showroom floor in March of 2016. It now does not even have 100 hours on it and so far I have had to replace the throttle cable (it kept sticking), a leaky valve cover gasket, the deck belt consistently fell off when it had less than 10 hours on it. And the dealer says they have leveled my deck twice, but it still sits noticeably higher in the front than in the back. I would choose any other brand next time for the money spent (almost $6k).

                                            Well built and sturdy, this machine can go through the thickest grass with power to spare. Go for the 60" deck and don't look back

It now does not even have 100 hours on it and so far I have had to replace the throttle cable (it kept sticking), a leaky valve cover gasket, the deck belt consistently fell off when it had less than 10 hours on it. And the dealer says they have leveled my deck twice, but it still sits noticeably higher in the front than in the back. I would choose any other brand next time for the money spent (almost $6k).

                                                    I just purchased the new 2017 gravely ZT HD 52 with the Kawasaki engine and wow it's a really nice mower.really like the new style and the larger tires and comfortable seat.the mower is built really well.strong frame and deck as well.I looked it over very well before I made my decision over other brands and gravely just had what I was really looking for in mower.like the 3 year no hour limit warranty.only grip I'd say about it is the new gas tank.no big deal but it's mounted under the seat and no actual gauge just a window view right below the front part of the seat and it's hard to tell how much gas is in it.but other than that gravely hit a home run with the new 2017 line up.I would definitely recommend it to anyone.thanks gravely!

                                                      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.
