52" Grandstand is our "main" mower.

Lovin my new 48 V-Ride, I can't tell that it's slower than a 60" even on open lots, just so easy to turn and get around on.

It would be nice if "small" wasn't such a subjective term.

Ok, been on this site awhile but haven't ever posted. Whats the deal with walk behind and stander mowers? Whats the advantage of them vs. small zero turn riders? I have never seen any lawncare business in northeast Kansas use either one. Everyone here uses riders or a 21" pusher for tight spaces. Most of the guys use 60" mowers and a few have 54's. Are our lawns just that much larger in general?

People don't realize how good the stand on mowers are. They are lighter smaller and more maneuverable, unless you are riding the mower for over an hour a stander is the ticket. I will never buy another rider.

thats a tough one.


i run a scag bride right now that whenever the guys use it… i get complaints!

I think they have brain farts about not setting the deck height right and then go as fast as jesus will carry them on a prayer.

If it's for employees, I'd get a Wright Fixed deck 36" as cheap as you can get it.

If it's for you. Deck height adjustment is nice.
The Vride is a bit more comfortable than the Wright.

It's for me and I will be operating it. I had a older 36" wright stander probably a 2008 and it seemed like it would rut the grass a little bit but I heard the newer ones have slightly bigger tires in the back but haven't confirmed that yet. It's funny because if you go to a dealer that sells both they tell you to go with the scag when I see wright standees everywhere mowing

By small i meant yards from 6000sqft to 10000sqft. Also taking in to consideration the fact that you have to squeeze through a gate that is 36 inches give or take.
