Great Dane mowers? good or not?

I don't know much about them but they look pretty nice and seem durable. How are those in between the leg controls, im not sure id like those. Tell me if you think this is a good deal: I want all new equipment next year.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but seems like I read on here that Ariens is going to shut down this brand?

Yes, that is a dump sale. Great Dane will be gone as a brand, by next year. Not sure how long Ariens will provide parts support after that.

i love my surfer (stand on mower) cant say anything about their riders because ive never used them. but ya they're going out of business soon and i heard they will stop making parts after 6 months. so to be safe id probably pass on that mower, as much as it kills me to say that!

I would just give the parent company a call directly! 920-756-2141 I demoed a new great dane brutus a few years back and was really impressed with it! I also called them with some questions that they quickly answered, its interesting to know that Dane Scag originally designed and built them in a shop in southern Indiana before selling the design. I ended up with a super z but the greatdane was one of my top picks, my guess is it will become part of the gravely line, which is not a bad thing ! let us know what ya find out, I really hope they don't kill the line! good luck.
