    I have a friend that owns a couple of great danes and i am not to impressed with how they are built. It seems like their engineering is really bad. He told me he's always in the shop with them. I looked at a surfer and test drove it and i really wasnt satisfied. It ended up being between JD and Wright. I bought the deere becuase their financing is better.

    Wrights are built much better,the JD is basically just about the same mower. Did you look at both machines ? You really wanted the Wright but opt'ed and got the Deere

    The Wrights are definitly built ALOT better! The Dane and clones feel like toys!

    the JD is nowhere near the same as the great dane. JD sold great dane about two years ago and started making their own design.
