    Today I decided to take a dealer up on demoing a Dane Super Surfer. I'll be quite honset, i thought it woudl suck royally to stand up on a machine for hours on end mowing, but my thoughts have changed now that i've used it for awhile. Of course, ZTR is something one must get used to, but once that was mastered while standing up, the machine became a joy to use. It's very compact and makes for easy trimming. On that note, my machine had the 52" deck. I'd recommend the 60" for trimming, because on the 52", the body of the machine and the deck are the same length and it makes for difficult trimming at times. Other than that, the mower has great power, very mobile and comfortable to operate. 2 thumbs up from me!

    I agree we have used and love the surfers we are about to add one to our equipment list. We were able to demo one for over a month and it is an awesome machine!

    I tried out the 36" Wright Stander at the expo. It was diffent for sure. Hard to get used to at first. I liked it though.

    I demoed both the sufer and the wright stander at the expo! No comparison! The stander had much smoother controls where as on the surfer i felt like i had no control!!! Everything about the stander seemed better!

    Got to agree with Evan there. Stander was better.
