    Who has them? any problems, how is the scalping? I'm looking for a new 60'' stander, I've demoed a 52'' 23 hp wright stander and while it is nice I run 52'' ferris w/b now so there isn't much of a time saving but would like to go to the 60. Please give me your thoughts-- A rider is to big. Thanks Joel

    They got one at my dealer. I had a chance a while ago to buy some 61" models. But I decided to stay with the 52" decks. THe productivy isn't that much more. But a 52" will be faster than your 52" ferris. My sentar is a 61", its a floating deck, but still scalps on my very uneven lawns. But does ok other wise.

    love my 61" Stander/23hp Kaw.......a few scapling problems but nothing major....you gotta take a little bad with all the good.

    As far as productivity....I have shaved over and hour off my regular mowing days from using a 48" with a sulky...

    I have a 61'' surfer(fixed deck). It is my favorite mower of all time. I use it on pretty much every yard I can get in on to. Hardly any scalping trouble. Very productive.

    Better than Jars of Clay?

    My question is I have a 2000 model I'm selling to a friend.
    I have two mowers that I'm pricing. would you get:

    A the Chariot by Great Dane with 500 hour at 4k$ Kohler 23hp

    B the Wright Sentar 23hp Kawasaki at 5k$

    Both are 60"
    I own 5.5 acres, Thanks

    I have read up on the Sentar mowers.
    I think they make a newer model Sentar 2?

    Does anyone know if this is true and if it is, how is it different?

    Thanks
