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
I agree. I am on my second grandstand and echo the same sentiments. Not very good in tall wet or weedy lawns. But like you said it is very nimble and agile. After demoing the v Ride and the gravely I ended up buying another grandstand. The scag and gravely were not nearly as agile. They seemed bulky and harder to maneuver in tight areas.
