| February 9, 2012

Gravely has introduced the new commercial Pro-Walk 61 mower with a 23-hp Kawasaki FS 691v engine and a 61-inch cutting width.

“With the addition of this machine, Gravely now offers a complete and flexible line-up of walk-behind mowers to meet all the needs of landscape contractors,” says Bill Engler, director of landscape contractor sales for Gravely.

Gravely’s Pro-Walk 61 with hydro drive and electric start, features a fixed and floating deck, providing the operator flexibility in mowing styles with a single machine. The floating deck cuts to the contours of the landscape and is lockable, giving operators the adaptability for changing terrain and improving the finished appearance.

The Pro-Walk 61 is available in Pro-Steer controls for better control and maneuverability. The Pro-Steer controls are positioned topside for better control and maneuverability and operate similar to a zero-turn mower.

Built with a durable, fabricated seven-gauge steel deck, the newly designed Pro-Walkhas a heavy-duty rubber side-discharge chute to expel clippings faster and farther without clogging. This lessens damage to the surrounding environment and is interchangeable with the grass collector attachment. The moweralso includes maintenance-free aluminum spindles featuring aluminum housings to provide better heat dissipation.

Powered by a 23hp Kawasaki  FS engine, the Pro-Walk 61 meets the needs of commercial contractors. Height of cut adjustments in 0.25-inch increments allow operators to deliver precise, manicured landscape appearances. Eighteen-inch rear wheels easily climb curbs and other obstacle and semi-pneumatic, foam-filled front tires allow for better overall control and eliminate down-time from flat tire repairs.

Additional features include:
•    Removable belt shield with single knob for convenience
•    Ergonomic operator presence control for ease of steering, comfortable grip and reducing operator fatigue
•    Rear hydraulic filter and reservoir easily accessible for convenience in servicing

The Pro-Walk line is covered by Gravely’s two-year limited commercial warranty. For more information on the 61-inch model and the entire line of Pro-Walks visit www.gravely.com.
