    might be looking for a new mower... name me some standers or sit downs that come in a 32" deck ( anything bigger and cant fit in 90% of my backyards)
    most likely going to be used so u can give some old models also


    thanks

    yea i know about the wright 32 which what im looking for used but i dont think a lot of people have them for sale i think the 32 came out after all the other sizes and is relatively newer

    i also found great dane makes them... i found a 61" stander for $2400 but i do small properties with fences that dont fit anything over a 32" mower so this will only be used for front yards and my 32 inch scag would have to be back yard


    Do large mowers like 61" give as quality of a cut as a smaller mower like a 32".. im sure there is no difference but it just seems like a huge beast and it might be to harsh on the lawns????

    I think Scag still makes a 32" WB- you might find some used ones. They are iron solid units.

    I bought the Wright 32" last year.The 32" has a 15hp twin Kawa. Really starts easy with one pull, good lift with the stock blades. Have the only one in the city I think. Most have the 36" or bigger. I bought mine because I also have a lot of places with small gates or places that are tight to manouvre in. I like the cut, ( I traded in my 20hp 44" Toro with a velke towards the new Stander) it cuts better than the Toro did and is more productive, better times on all the lawns, it moves faster both forward and especially in reverse. The only thing that you really have to watch with it is sharp turns. The size of the tires, the distance apart or whatever makes it easy to tear the turf, slowing down helps but you have to watch it. I would have gotten the 36" but then I wouldn't be able to get in to a lot of places and I would have to use the 21". I also used a Toro 32" wb the one with on 32" blade ( never did like it ) since I wouldn't get much for it I kept it and have it as a backup in case the Stander is down for repairs. You aren't likely to find a used one since they only came out last summer.
