Fixed deck wouldn't work for me.. we change heights too much
The wright is the only one that I know of for sure as I specifically asked about this. The wright is goes up to 5 inches. This is the front runner in my mind before any actual demos are done so I have inquired a little more about it than the others.

I know that ferris generally goes to 5 on the Z's I have used or owned from them.

The scag and the toro I honestly have no idea but will report back as I demo them.

Financing should not be a issue as I am buying all the new stuff outright. I do not like having debt and that is part of the reason that I have limited my growth till now. Debt free is the place to be for me!
Can't remember, but I've heard complaints about the RH both from people and dealers...

The reason I ask is that the 36 Mini Z that I have now I love for what we use it for but the wheels are wider than the deck so it leaves a strip of grass along all surfaces we mow where as my 48 x one allows me to get pretty darn close to any obstruction such as a house and does not require as much as trimming.
You know as bad as it sounds, I've never paid attention to that...I believe it is flush with the tires....I think the RH tires stick out further though.,.not 100% but that's what I recall.

My 36" Sentar is flush with the tires, it only becomes an issue for me on wavy garden edges or sharp curves.

PS I love my 36" Sentar, but I actually took the seat off because I have a few hilly properties and found it wanted to wheelie quite a bit. Works just fine standing once you get use to the handle being a little lower.

Rapid height, they just changed the name from Sentar to Sport. If anything it maybe hangs out an inch, see attached pic.
