Sounds like a really good deal?

    Not sure if it's a good deal or not (not up on prices for standers) but I bought my Toro 48 WB from them. They seem like a decent outfit.

    I don't know much about them, but for what I see there, that seems like a good deal. It's got a 23hp Kawi, that's pretty pricey itself.

    I'd say that's a really good price, we know it ain't stolen, there's little doubt in
    my mind that it's anything but brand new, and if memory serves me right they
    sold new for like 6g's (but at least 5, I'm pretty sure of that)...

    The company that made them is no longer in business but I have a 60" Everride Ztr and haven't had any problems getting parts.
    This might present some issues with the warranty, unless that dealer is local to you I'd say assume
    this one is sold "No warranty" and then you're gtg, even then it's a good deal.

    Only other thing is that 52" deck won't fit through anything but double gates, small price to pay.

    Here's another (other than that crazy steel chute cover):

    Now Red Hawk is definitely not a widely sold brand and it is pistol grips, but for a Hydro that's also a super deal.

    i havent really heard of everride mowers but for a stander mower that seems like a good deal.

    That's the stander that I have. Bought from a member here on the site. It does tend to scalp at times but not terrible. I made a striping kit mounted underneath the platform behind the deck but in front of the rear wheels, works excellent. The cut and power of this mower is really superb. I also put a powerchute on it, again works excellent. For $4k I don't think you can beat it. You can get parts at your local John Deere dealer for the QuikTrak mowers. Same mower, different decks.

    I got that exact mower and has been a great mower so far. Would recommend to anyone! Evverride does still have a website up and I do believe the Ariens bought them and is running them as a sister company.

    I think Wright manufacturing bought them out, if I recall correctly they declared
    bankruptcy or something but I am pretty sure they did close their manufacturing
    plant, this happened like a year or two ago.

    But yeah, I still see the machines being sold even at my dealer.
    Not sure what to make of it but I am thus far glad they didn't just drop the ball and leave me
    hanging with a machine I can't find parts for, that's what more than a few of us were afraid of.
