Cut: Rating A-

Gravely's new X factor deck looks like a real winner. The deck cuts extremely clean with great vacuum. It reminds of Exmark's Ultracut deck.

Durability: Rating A-

Gravely's ZTR's are well built with both Kawasaki and Kohler engine options. The 5400 Series transmissions are field proven. Gravely has a well built cutting machine on the market.

Handling and Balance: Rating B+

These mowers are responsive and smooth. The suspension seats really make for a nice ride.

Available Accessories: Rating B+

For a company this size, I'd like to see more accessories, but all the basics are there.

Maintenance and Ingenuity: Rating B+

A nice, well engineered ZTR. Gravely's new zero turn mowers really give Exmark and Scag a run for their money. Gravely seems to be putting more energy into its commercial mower lineup.
