            Mowing 1 1/2 acres, sure beats my old riding mower, although it did do a great job, but not as fast or easy, don't have to back track to get missed places, just "zero turn", and get er done. would recommend to a friend, ps, the dealer was great also.

                          I researched for six months on what type of mower I wanted. I had a John Deere 320 that was becoming a money pit, so it was time to buy something different. I visited the Gravely dealer in Sandusky Michigan five times to make up my mind. Finally when they had their Mowerfest, I was hooked on the ZTXL52. I purchased it and it is the best machine that I have ever had for mowing. I mow five acres with it and my mow time was cut down drastically leaving me more time to spend elsewhere. Thanks Gravely and Ball Equipment. Hooked for life.

                            Returned a cub RZT L 46 Fab w/ 22 hp honda that I got for a smokin deal of $2200 OTD thinking I was upgrading...Dare I say that the cub with the weaker EZT cut almost as good and was faster! Had smaller wheels/tires, but was easier to steer and they perform equally on hills and uneven ground. ROUGH ride. Not worth the extra $2000! Wishing I woulda got a Husqvarna MZ 52 or 61 selling for $4295. Shoulda done more test driving!...Now I'm stuck with a disappointing slow mower...dealer won't allow a return since it's been used.

                              I love this machine, durable and easy to use. it does use a lot of gas and when using the complete mulch kit, it cuts poorly. We went round & round with the dealer (who was very helpful - Harrington & Sons Emmitsburg, MD) trying to figure out why it cut so poorly with the mulcher, to which they agreed. We ended up putting the regular cutting blades on it with the mulch baffles still installed. It cuts much better, but still leaves some uncut grass. See video - it is difficult to see, but if you watch closely, you can see the strips of uncut grass. This video is with the full mulch kit installed.

                                Took 2hrs to change break in oil and filter.There is nothing consumer friendly about the design of this model mower.Its almost as if someone who never saw a mower designed it.

                                  depth at 4.5 in 10 " high grass and 3.5 with grass 6 high with no problem.
                                  After I changed the break in oil to 10 -40w Vavoline the motor starts easily and runs great in 12 inch grass. I had 2012 42zt with belt and plugging problems . This mower makes the 42 zt a tinker toy..

                                  Did tons of research before I pulled the trigger on this mower. Kawasaki motor, ZT-2800 Hydro's, and a welded deck for a great price. I love cutting the grass so much that I volunteer to cut the common areas in my neighborhood. If you have a lot of hills I recommend this unit due to the lower center of gravity. Just lower the tire pressure and hang on.

                                  I bought the 42 ZT XL this spring; it is great It cuts very evenly; the lawn looks great. I had a 30 inch walk behind before. The Gravely cut my mowing time on 1 1/4 acre lot from about 1 hour 45 minutes to about 55 minutes. I had never driven a zero turn mower, but it is very easy to learn. I haven't hit anything yet! I am very sensitive to motion sickness so was concerned that the zero turn might cause a problem in that area. It has been no problem - I feel great when I finish the mowing, the lawn looks great and I have more time for other things. A Win-win all around. Although I don't know about durability yet, the Gravely seems very well designed and constructed. I certainly recommend the ZT XL.
