    Comments about Gravely ZT XL 60 Zero Turn Mower:

    My brother owns a landscaping company and recommended the Gravely mower to me. I live in Texas and cut about 2 acres of lawn and field per week in the summer. This has been an excellent mower with one exception: The cooling fins were to long causing the belt to slip. I called my dealer about this and he came right out and trimmed the fins. The mower has worked perfectly since then.
    I would recommend it to anyone!

        2016 XL 52" cut with 80 hours and a 23hp Kawasaki engine. So far this mower has been perfect. After 80 hours it functions the same as the day I purchased it. I haven't had any service performed other than regular maintenance.

            Comments about Gravely ZT XL 60 Zero Turn Mower:

            within 5 hours of use there has been a constant leak of either transmission fluid or oil coming from the left side of the mower. The transmission looks good, all bolts are tight. The leak looks to be at the base of the Kawasaki engine. I have tightened the drain plug and still a constant leak. I can really trouble shoot because the transmission fluid is motor oil as well. I took the fluid to the local dealer after 9 hours of use, and the dealer said I would have to pay $100 to have them look at it? Figured excessive leaking on a new mower would be covered under the 5 year warranty.... Probably would not buy another.

              I have a 2 acre residential lot with many trees. Purchased the ZTXL in April of 2017. The more handles and cuts very well. All the problems have been with the bagger. The bagger cover has a rubber seal along the back edge. This seal started coming off right away. I tried all kinds of different adhesives with no luck. After a month, the metal rod frame that creates the top of the bagger came apart and is bent. Now after 3 hours of us, the rear chassis frame is cracked almost all the way through. The cause is obviously the bagger weight be to much for the frame to handle. Crack is right at on of the notches cutout to make the 45 degree bend in the frame. Love the mower, hate the bagger!

                            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.

                                I look forward to mowing. Have replaced the molded rubber chute with a heavy steel 3d part door, and fabricated a "striper" that I mounted to the frame, between the hitch plate and the mower frame. Have had for about 2 months now, and it operates on my small front yard, and larger back yard with lots of trees, exceptionally well. Also use it to mow daughters much larger lawn.

                                    What makes this outstanding mower even better is the most incredible customer service I have EVER received from any dealer of any kind - and I'm talking about Anderson Tractor in Carthage, Texas. I live in Western Louisiana and purchased my mower from them - bypassing my Gravely dealer who is 10 minutes away - because of their unbelievable customer service. If you are contemplating buying a great mower, please try these people - even if you do not live in East Texas. They will deliver it to your door - at a better price than what your local dealer would charge you for the exact mower. I have never witnessed the kind of service and care I've received from this company. Unheard of today. Anyway, I've had Dixie Chopper, Toro & Husqvarna - none of them are near the quality of my Gravely. Thank you Gravely and an even bigger thank you to Anderson Tractor in Carthage, Texas - Mr. Anderson, Melissa and ALL of their employees! You people are the BEST!

                                        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.

Excellent fuel capacity. Had 3/4 of a tank and still had just under a quarter to spare at the end. Thanks Gravely for an awesome machine!!!!

                                          This mower turns with the greatness of ease, I have 24hp FR730V Kawasaki motor. I mow over 2 acres with it in rough quack grass. I maintan
                                          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..
