The website has a full price list with engine and deck lift options. Your dealer may be able to go a few hundred under.

I'd have to agree with this we own 2 a 36rh and a 52 stander x tried the grandstand but didn't like being behind the wheels of the mower

You are going to get opinions with that question. It's subjective. I demoed an Exmark Vantage, but bought a Scag Vride 52". I like the Scag.

1 vote for Wright Stander X! Demoed Exmark, Toro, & Scag but just can't beat hillside stablility of a wright All are great cutting machines. The aero core deck is awesome compared to the older fixed decks.

My main competition has a 48" Toro grandstand and they love it! Usually they are running a aluminum catcher on it as well, but generally it cuts very nicely.
I was talking to my dealer yesterday about them and asked about how well they did on hills. He said that the smaller models don't do so well, but once you get to 48" the width the overall weight really help it on hills. So with a 52" you shouldn't have any problems. I'd at least demo one, and see how you like it. What more does it cost you then your time?
