    i have used a simular mower like those two, i used a John Deere quicktrac. the mower was really great if the only thing you would want to do is mow. it even cut down on how long it took me to cut lawns. the down fall of this mower was that there wasn't a good way to bag with it, but if you only need a second mow and not a clean up mower then it would be a good addition

    I don't think Everride makes the 61". The only negative with a larger deck is more scalping. But still a very nice machine.

    I'd go with the Stander RH. i've used standers for years and have no complaints.

    By the way, it's Stander, not Standard. I wouldn't get a 61" Wright Stander because of the overhang of the deck past the wheels, it can scalp very easily. If you're thinking of a Wright, get a 52" instead. But demo both styles of stand on mowers to see what you like best.

    Quite a few people will dog them, but I have had minimal issues with mine, and all have been taken care of quickly by my dealer. It really all boils down to dealer support, and not abusing your machines. I love my Danes, most of them are 52" units. If possible, look at their new fixed deck Surfer, 52" with a 19hp Kaw for 5k

    yea i have looked at the 52" unit but i allready have a 52" ztr and i really need a 61" and i was looking at the stand on units becuase i only have a 12ft trailer and i can't get two ztrs on it. How do your great danes stripe?
