    We currently use a really old 36 inch Belt driven Scag walk-behind mowers on one of our residential crews. However, it is getting really old and I am wanting to replace it this season.

    I am thinking of getting either a new 36" Scag walk behind (belt driven) ($3000)


    Picking up this used 36" Wright Stander ($2000 OBO) :


    What would you do?

    Depends on hours. Also pistol grips are harder on your hands compared to levers on the stander.

    So if it had an average amount of hours for a 2007 you would roll with the stander?

    We are scag guys but we do have 2 36" Wright RH and although we have 2800 hours on one and 700 on the other one, we are letting one sit. The reason is the crews like the WB units better for small properties. And like you we needed a replacement for an aging scag hydro.....but scag didn't have any floating decks so we went with snapper pro sw20. It is in the 4th year and we like it a lot. Now we are looking at the new scag that was just introduced this month with floating deck and new transaxles but the price is tooo darn high. We likely will buy another snapper. I will be posting our Wright Sentar RH that has 700 hrs in the next month.
