    Just came from the Power Show in Cols and was wondering if the Stander from Wright Mfg. is any good.

    The Great Dane Super Surfer is a better, faster unit with a floating easy to adjust deck much like a zero turn rider.

    There is a $600 factory "pre-season" rebate as well.

    FYI....

    I would not say the Surfer is better!
    I demoed both and chose the stander, built better, handles slopes better, better balance and it feels a whole lot more stable.

    I have a 42" and I plan on another this year.

    I looked at both this weekend at the power show, I am personally leaning towards the super surfer no particular reason I just liked it more. Both look like they would be great machines though.

    I looked at a 48"Stander at a trade show in Baltimore last Wednesday. Looks like a quality mower and is comfortable to stand on. The standing platform has some travel to it to cushion some of the bumps, or was that the Sentar. Not sure now. I was impressed with the design and the build of both. Looks very sturdy

    Anyone have any stability problems on 36" model? I know they're pretty narrow. I live in Florida now so won't be using them on tons of hills, but there are built up berms and such to deal with. I like the fact that they're short and compact and I can fit more mowers on my rig.

    I have put about 7 hours on a 52' that I bought a month ago. I really enjoy it. It really is a solid built machine. I haven't used it in any heavy growth yet, but I'm confident that it will be more than enough mower for the accounts I service.

    Hay fairway,
    Exmark has nothing to do with Wright Mfg.

    I would look at the 36" to 48" in a Stander and look at the Sentar for 52" and up
    My personal choice is a 42" 17 kaw Stander and a 61" Sentar with a 25 kaw

    Hey TBar, I know but Heil Bros seems to be confused...or their site's a work in progress.
