The sentar is a great machine you can stand or ride ,i havent seen to many at all Wright Ztr's out there so i cant say. We use nothing but Wright standers,very fast and higly productive. Most of our property's are under 3/4 acre. Our 52 is big and fast enough thou to tackle an acre thou. Ive demoed the sentar sport and love it. I might add one to our fleet next season. I would demo the sentar. How big are your property's your gonna be doing ?

our properties are anywhere from 1/4 acre to 20 acres. hills flats rough terrain you name it we have it. i am having a rep come out mon. so i can demo some. having them for a day or two wont tell me much but its a start i am just triing to get some feedback from actual seasoned users. we will be getting 15 of whatever i decide on.

i use the Standers. LOVE EM! I demoed the sentar 52". It had excellent power. The deck tipped a little on hills because of the weight on the back end of the mower ( I am 6'2" 315 lbs.). It also felt sluggish on turns. I am too tall to stand on it comfortably.

Never demoed the ZTR so, no feedback there. But my 2 cents, Standers are the way to go.

thats cool i wont be making a decision til dec. anyway. i want to go with scag but the 09 price is outragious unless the dealer really wants to keep me. i have been with him through thick and thin for 20 years i dont want to part ways but if i find another brand he does not want to deal with then oh well this is my stomach i have to feed not his.i am open to any opinions on any brand but toro and john deere at this point.e-mark is my second choice behind scag but at 14000 i cant justify it since i bought 8 pices of you know the rest john deere this past spring and need to get out of them by selling as many as possible. i was told by one sales man 11000 or more for turf tiger.

I just had the Wright rep bring out 4 demoes yesterday for me to check out. The new zk was pretty awesome. It had a 31hp kawasaki, 16cc pumps, 15mph, had a suspension platform, and was surprisingly comfortable for a stand up. I would recommend to the supervisors, as they will be alot more productive with it. My only drawback was the $10400 price point, but the unit was prolly well worth it. The sentars were very nice too, and the smaller units, I just wasn't a fan of the deck height adjustments, seemed like a pain in the neck to adjust the fixed decks. The zk was adjustable from the handle by the controls.

Niner i'd get the ZK 'S for the large propertys and the sentars for the smaller ones. The sentars are great machines for residential 1 acre and down the ZK would be great and fast on the big acre jobs,no need to double cut anything.

i usually set up my crews with the same mowers on each truck so any crew can do a big job or a little. right now each crew has 2 61" riders 1 54' walkbehind 1 36" walkbehind and a 21' push.what set-up of the wright you think would work best?
