I can get a great price on a Grandstand 48 with a 19 hp engine. The 23 is alot more. What does the 23 do better than the 19?

Is anyone buying the 19 HP?

Are these machines cheaper than machines with seats?

I have never used anything with an engine and thought, "I wish I had less horsepower".
If it is within your budget, I would get the 23. The 23 will handle taller and wetter grass better, as well as will perform better on hills.

Good advice. TY

Ditto to what they said, if you can afford it go bigger, but for the 48 most situations the 19 should be sufficient.

Also why would anyone want to sit down. My back thanks me over and over by choosing to stand this year.

I demoed a 23HP 52 deck today. Grass was either very moist and lush or downright wet. It had hi lift blades and I got alot of stragglers. The striping was not too bad. I was expecting better. What may have been the problem?

Cutting height? The operator?

I dont have the grandstand but I do have a wright stander. I would def go with the 23. I have a 52 23kawi on mine and I wish I would have got the 25. You can always use more power
