Gravely unveils redesigned Pro-Turn 200 and 400 zero-turn mower lineup

Gravely unveiled a redesigned series of Pro-Turn 200 and Pro-Turn 400 commercial zero-turn mowers. Redesigned from the inside out, the new Gravely Pro-Turn 200 and 400 series feature smarter components, a smoother ride and more intuitive controls.

With the launch of these new units, Gravely introduced to the market a constant-belt tensioning system, which enhances overall performance. The new system maintains a constant belt tension, which produces a consistent blade tip speed; eliminates belt slippage, which can damage belts and pulleys; improves engine efficiency and reduces the load, which saves fuel and engine life; and eliminates spring adjustments, which saves time by ensuring consistent cut quality.

In addition, the new deck level system features an exclusive design requiring only a four-point adjustment, reducing parts by 50 percent, which helps the mower maintain its best cutting performance. The deck level system also eliminates deck hanger welds, resulting in a flat deck and improving cut quality.

Also new for MY2016, the EZ Lift Deck System found on the Pro-Turn 400 series mowers requires 25 percent less effort to operate, and it is manufactured with 50 percent less parts. The 19 cutting positions with quarter-inch increments help eliminate overhung loads.

The Pro-Turn 200 and 400 also have new custom-made seats that offer more support and comfort than previous models. The Pro-Turn 400 has a high-back comfort seat that integrates Elasticity Vibration Control (EVC), which moves and flexes up to 1.5 inches with the operator, reduces low amplitude vibration, and takes pressure off of the operator’s spine and tailbone. The seat also has three-inch air suspension with a three-inch pillow top insert and a 12-volt internal air compressor, concave lateral support with spinal detent and side bolster, reclining backrest, adjustable and padded armrests, adjustable lumbar and a two-inch retractable seatbelt. The seat can also be collapsed 40 degrees for easier shipping and storage.

The 72-inch Pro-Turn 200 and 400 series mowers also feature Gravely’s new X-Factor II Deck, a seven-gauge, all-steel welded deck that is backed by a lifetime warranty.

“The new Gravely 200 and 400 Pro-Turns were inspired by the landscape contractors that use our machines all day, every day,” said Gravely Brand Director Bill Engler. “As we step into our 100th year of business, we couldn’t be more excited about the next generation of Gravely commercial mowers. We’ve thought about everything with this new lineup, from the belt system and X-Factor II deck, to the new seats, to the overall appearance, and we think we’ve created something that will really astound our customers as we welcome the next era.”

The Pro-Turn 200 and 400 series mowers are offered in 52-, 60- or 72-inch deck sizes, and are available with either Kawasaki or Kohler EFI engines. The Pro-Turn 200 starts at a list price of $9,899 USD, while the Pro-Turn 400 starts at $11,999.
