Great mower!

This has been a great mower so far. Very fast and has a pretty cut. The choke so far has hung up once but that's relatively minor.

This mower is a good mower. However, before I got my ZT-X 52, I had been using a Cub Cadet RZT 50 and it had a front end pivot on the deck. So when you were going over bumps in the yard or on uneven ground the deck would adjust to the ground with the pivot at the front wheel axles. Now that I have my Gravely, I notice that it does NOT have this awesome feature. I paid way less for my Cub Cadet and it has that feature. I think Gravely should put this on all their mowers and they would have even better business. This gravely runs good and cuts good on FLAT ground, but if you have humps or dips in your yard, you can guarantee it is going to dig in and make it look like you're mower isn't cutting even.

    I just took delivery of my new ZT Z 42 inch 2 days ago. I used it to cut my lawn for the first time ad found it difficult to maneuver close to landscaping and structures. this is due to the 42 " deck only extending 1 maybe 2 inches beyond the front wheels. If I would have knowing this ahead of time, I would not have purchased the 42 and went with the 52 inch deck.

        I didn't know I had a hilly yard till I bought this last August. I spent the fall trying to improve my driving skills when the problem seems to be with the model and zero turns in general. Not very pleased. It mows great and mows fast I just can't mow everywhere I thought I could.

            I use this to mow a residential property with a small orchard. The job time was cut in half and the maneuverability is fantastic. But... I also trailer the mower to mow a large church property several miles away. Loading the mower on a trailer using two trailer ramps is treacherous. DO NOT ATTEMPT. If the grade of the ramps is too steep the back of the mower bottoms out and the front wheels swing off the ramps! Also, the floor mat is NOT secured to the floor. I lost this mat to the wind while towing to my destination. Finally, this model has a history of automatic choke failure. I should have heeded the warning. I've had to wedge the choke open on several occasions to get it to start.

              I have a 3/4 acre corner lot that is bumpy in spots. The mower makes my lawn look so much better than my old JD D110 ever did. My dealer told me to see how it cuts before I buy a mulching kit and I'm so glad I did. The clippings are spread so well that you can't even see them. This mower is built like a tank which is awesome for durability bit not so much for ride comfort over the bumps. It's quiet and starts well every time. It was easy to learn and I keep getting faster each time I use it. I wish it were easier to tell how much fuel is in the tank and I wish there were a striping kit available for it. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and it's value.

                    I bought this mower Saturday the 30 of July 2016 my way fe cut grass for 3 hours I got on it today the 31st to finish the lawn after an additional 2 hours of cutting grass I was driving up the lawn to add gas and get some water the transmission went out it will not drive forwards or backwards and the sales ladies sleep about its easier to tell you what's not covered than tell you what is covered has my wife conserved now if they fix it under warranty my wife says I can't touch it. It's rediculous that I spent 3200 on a machine didn't even get the lawn cut its already broken I would understand if I hit something and caused it but I didn't you could have had a two year old at the controls and it would have happened I feel like there's no price of mind I was told when I bought it they only cover manufactures defects well when nuts and bolts fall off a new machine and it dosent drive I want to know for a fact I'm covered not filled with doubt should have went with John Deere at least you know it's bumper to bumper warranty also at 5 hours the svc oil lights on

                        I have owned 2 Gravely ZT34's in the past. The first one I owned I used for 2 years and my neighbor fell in love with it so I sold it to him when I relocated out of state.After buying a new home I bought another ZT34 and used it for 6 years for my home and for my wife's small landscaping business. The only parts I had to change was blades and the belt and a battery. These machines are rock solid. I just traded it in for a new ZT42X. This machine is built rock solid, I have had it for a month now and I find myself fighting my wife to get a chance to use it. She no longer has a landscaping business so the only time she gets to use it is at home so she will cut our half acre and then she can be found cutting the neighbors grass.
                        I can not emphasize how well built this machine is, all commercial steel and welded deck and commercial engine. No cheap stamped deck that bends when you hit a curb or rust out after a few years from the corrosive chemicals in most fertilizers. Don't be impressed by big name companies, the Gravely is twice the machine for the same amount of money.

                              DEALER WHERE PURCHASED: Bob's Equipment, Vestavia-Alabama.
                              My Gravely ZTx-42 was a great suggestion Keith, Jonathon and Laura. Particularly Laura's female perspective was helpful to my mother during a demonstration in Keith's absence. Learning this intimidating mower to her was for residential use and not commercial use was pivotal, smile. Now having this mower in place of my Honda push mower I often finish cutting my THREE 2,800 square feet rental home lawns and say, 'wow, I can't believe my time is reduced to 10 minutes.' The same square footage once posed me a 45 minute cutting time. Too often I find myself cutting 1-2 friendly neighbors overgrown lawns for fun. Noticeably they don't mind. RESOLVED ISSUE: I unfortunately suffered a solenoid issue after 4 hours. I called Keith for his telephone diagnosis. He felt it necessary for his team to return the mower to his shop for further evaluation. The solenoid was ordered from Gravely and my ZTx returned to me under one week. I was happy to be back at cutting all lawns. Every finished lawn reveals even cuts and many compliments.

                              GRASS TYPE: Zoysia and Bermuda

                              OTHER ZERO TURN MOWERS CONSIDERED: Husqvarna, John Deere, Troybilt, Cub Cadet, Scagg, Toro. Keith, Laura, Jonathon's opinions, my budget and all related owner DISSATISFACTION comments discovered on their websites eventually led me to Gravely.

                                This would be a great mower if it didn't burn the grass when not mowing fast enough. The engineers at Gravely are aware of the problem but have do nothing to remedy.
