    I have been looking to trade one of my scag 61" tigers for a Wright Sentar, but just want to know are they as fast, as good of cut, I have heard they have had some reliability probs, they look great on paper, and in the showw room, I just want some feed back.

    Personally don't like them at all. I would stick with a real rider if I were you.

    Sentars are very uncomfortable machines especially if you are a bigger person.

    I'm not huge but I do likw my space, they did seem alittle tight, but I thought it might just be me.

    I have no complaints. I have been running mine for three seasons now and totally love it. I'd buy another in a heartbeat. Comfort has also not been an issue.

    I can cut you a deal on a 2003 61" sentar with 20 hours on it. I bought it spring of 2004. I bought mine for a large account, only to lose it 3 weeks later when the guy died. I was going to replace it with another 52" sentar (since it didn't match the rest of the fleet), but got a deal on a 52" stander so I bought that instead.

    I like it. Its got power and will climb any hill you put it on.

    The problems were with the original sentars, had a belt and wheel motor mount problem. The sentar II have a completely different belt system and wheel motor mounts, along with monster oversize pumps and motors. Its twice the machine.

    How does a sentar do as far as mulching in the fall with leaves?

    Well I never used it in the fall. But if it is like the standers with double gators. Then they are #$%^($&^%*& awesome at mulching leaves.

    The grass gobbler turbo 10 with turbo 10 leafgobbler. About $600 and has no moving parts. It packs leaves better than the regular leafgobbler and grassgobbler combo. I love mine. Its heavy, but bullet proof.
