Ok kids, This should be the last post about this!!! The verdict is in. I have a wright stander 42 and I took out a demo 52 supersurfer today. There is a BIG difference they both had a 17 kaw were used on the same lawns, same slopes same conditions. The only difference was deck size...its not a fair compression to the stander but read on. Surfer Pros: Suspension platform. You can step off and the blade stops, not the motor. Faster than the stander. Very nice deck hight adjustment. Surfer cons: Choke combined with the throttle. Rear tires tracks the same width as deck. HORRIBLE hillside performance. Anti scalp roller on left side of deck limits trim ability. Cant mow full speed or deck will bounce ALOT! Heavy controls, require more input than the stander. Stander pros: Excellent hillside performance Can mow at full speed Great trim ability Ability to pop a wheelie when needed (or for fun) Lighter than the surfer Quick direction changes Separate choke control Stander cons: Hight changes require tolls and time. Not to speedy 6.5mph To summarize... They both had a flawless cut (not as good as a walker but darn close) Well the Stander pulled the surfer out of the lake and I finished mowing that slope with the stander! enough said...I am staying with Stander.
