    Im going to look at a 2003 wright stander 52" with a 17 hp kawi on it tomorrow. the guy is asking 3500 for it. it has 300 hours on it. It however does not have a electric starter. it is only a pull start. Is this a good price for this piece of equipment?

    It's underpowered, but the price is about right if it's in the kind of condition the hours would indicate. Is this a personal use mower, or has it been in commercial service? Either way, he may take a couple hundred less, and if it fills a need, could be a good buy.

    I paid $3500 for both of my 17hp 52" standers. Both has less than 50 hours on them. Both were demos. But you are looking at a 2003 model. Not a 1998 and 2000 model which are what I own. The 2003 has all of the much need improvements on them. I would buy it.

    I will tell your that the 17hp is under powered. 19hp is a minimum. Just don't plan on cutting tall wet grass. If your crank up the RPMS you can get by.

    I was 15 when I bought my first stander. So at the age of 16 your are doing good.
