    What are the main differences between these mowers and how would they be compared to the Wright Stander? What are your opinions?

    The differences between the John Deere and Great Dane are:

    1. The operator presence on the Deere is in the plateform Great Danes is in the control handle.

    2. Deere uses their 7 Iron deck which is a 7ga. stamped deck and Great Dane uses 7ga. fabricated deck.

    These are the main differences in the two units.

    As far as the differences between Great Dane and the Wright unit.

    1. Great Dane has a floating deck and Wright uses a fixed deck.
    2. The operator controls are different.
    3. Our standing platform has more foot room.
    4. Weight distribution is the big difference. Most of our weight is forward of the rear axle which gives us much better stability.

    I think the proof is in the equipment itself. Please drive both units and then you be the judge. I would love to hear your feedback after operating both units.

    John,

    The positioning is just a little different. We have an adjustable speed bar and theirs is fixed.
