View Full Version : Wanted: Stander mower (Great Dane, John Deere, Wright Stander), or a Walker

09-25-2008, 06:01 PM
As soon as my mower sells (see other thread to view ad for my Great Dane Scamper), I would like to buy or trade for a stand-up mower, or even possibly a Walker. I only have about $1500-$1700 to spend at maximum. It can have problems that need fixed, as long as it is nothing expensive like a needing a new engine. If it needs a hydro motor or wheel motor, that's no problem for me. The models I would be interested in would be a 48" or 52" Great Dane Super Surfer, John Deere 647 or 657, or a 48" or 52" Wright Stander. Also a 48" Walker mower would be a possibility. I will not consider any mowers with Briggs & Stratton engines, only Kawasaki and Kohler. Post photos and some details about the mower if you have one. I am located near Peoria IL, and would be willing to drive up to 4 hours distance to pick up. Thanks for your help.

I have a Great dane super surfer 48" floating deck. It has the 17hp Kawi. KAI on it. Runs Great. I just bought a new rack em bagging set up for it. It has new tires around 10 hours on the. I will Double check the total hours on the machine but It is right around 900. Motor has about 150. If you are interested give me a call at 847 530 5498.

Hate to bust your bubble but i wish you luck ,if thats all you got to spend . Even most high hour machines will cost about 2000 or more,espsecially cause of the deck size you want

Yes, I would be VERY interested once my mower sells. How much would you take for it? 900 hours doesn't worry me a bit. I have the 15HP Kawasaki KAI (basically the same engine), and it is my favorite because of it's huge power, and reliability. I have a Great Dane dealer right here in Peoria, which is nice.

I am looking to get 2500.00 for it. Or Trade, what have you got trade plus cash. The machine is nice but it just does not fit our needs. Let me know. Thanks

OBO I forgot to put that in the post

I might consider that. I have a 48" Great Dane Scamper that I am selling (see my other post). I might be able to do a trade plus cash once my other mower sells.

I have a 52" stander for 1550 or a 52" surfer for 1350

That is a standard surfer not a floating deck Super Surfer? Hours, more info.

Cowboy Tim, what engines do your two mowers have on them? Where in Minnesota are you located? I would be very interested in either one of them once my mower sells. Thanks for your replies.
