We've had our Wright stander for abour three years now (52" Rapid height 19HP) and it has been a POS to say the least. It was really an impulse buy because we needed a faster stronger mower for our new bigger commercial contracts in 2008. We've only run Scag walk behinds since we started back in 2003 and I love the quality of cut with the velocity decks. I recently went to the MidAm show this past Thursday and Friday and I was able to see the new Grandstand in person. Let me say it looks like it can do some work. The negatives of our Stander: -The 19HP isn't enough power and is burning oil bad -The leaf and grass blowout from the front is a pain -Cuts slow -Throttle Cable breaks every month -Has terrible cut quality even with blades with medium and high lift -HORRIBLE traction/ rutting when the grass is wet What we're looking for: -More Power, speed, etc. -A QUALITY cut like our Scag walk behinds with Velocity Decks -Better Traction and less rutting -More productivity! So what do you guys think??? 52" Grandstand or 52" V Ride???
