my cons: does not cut well in wet or tall grass, does not cut well with very weedy turf as well... i dont like that the hand controls are connected via cabling to the hydro pump armatures, and that is because the cabling stretches over time creating the need to adjust on a frequent basis, my turf tracers do better cutting wet and or tall grass.Now , with this said, i have demoed the newest wright stander, johndeere wich is a green painted wright, scag vpro, exmark vantage and gravely pro stance,.... in my opinion/ decision moving foward wil be to purchase either the exmark vantage , or scag vride
Man that new JD/wright whatever you wanna call does look NICE, but I think I'm going with either the 36" Toro GS or the Exmark vantage, if my weight isn't a problem with the front end. I prefer them but if they don't work out i'll look at the V-ride I know there wouldn't be a problem for me there as I 've seen several videos with guys my size or bigger with no problems.. Looking to get late Spring/early summer..
