That's why I decided on the v-ride, I tried almost every stand on, none of them where perfect but I felt the scag was good in all aspects.

Im leaning towards a scag because of how well they mow wet grass. How does wright and gravely and exmark do in wet grass?

Exmark-on morning dew, or wet from an irrigation system, not a problem. anything more than that it's clumps a lot!

I think the new style Gravely prostance handles better on hills and wet grass than their previous one. Mag360 did a review that did some comparisons - http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=400642&page=9

Might be helpful.

Maybe I'm biased because I have 6 Wright Standers and have been running Wrights since the 90's but I have demoed most of the other brands and feel that Wrights have the best controls and footprint due to their patents and they are better on the hills and faster in the open areas as well. JMO....

If your still looking, check on a John Deere stander. If you have a dealer that is close to you. Just another option, and more to think about..

Your right. Wright is building Standers for J.D now. Same mower without the quad lever controls. About $800.00 more than a Wright too.

I have not looked into a wright, but was told by a rep at JD (it's basically a wright) with some changes. And the price was right, can't argue with that. I've looked into alot of the standers and thought that the JD excelled over the scag/exmark/ and I will not even mention a dixie chopper. You asked for opinions and you will get them, I value service into a majority of my purchases (once again a check for JD). Good luck with whatever you decide, hopefully this season was good to you and just like everyone else, gearing up for the next cutting season.

We have a couple of 61" tt's, a Wright zk 61" and a 48" V-ride. The v-ride isn't nearly as comfortable on hills as either the tt's or the zk. The zk is the only stander I've used that I felt does really well on hills.
