    If it isn't Wright,
    it isn't right.

    I tested both- the GD did not have a solid feel. The new John Deere version was even less reassuring.

    The WS was solid, no muss no fuss. Fit my hieght well, and is fun to drive with out being worn out by the end of the day.

    By the way, if you are 6' or under you might investigate the Sentar. If I was shorter I probably would have gotten the Sentar for the increased speed and flexability of sitting and standing (plus a floating deck).

    I have demoed Wright and used a friends Surfer. I like the Wright much better. I am now trying to get rid of my chariot to get a Sentar.

    I have a 61" sentar with the 25hp and it is great
    I love the quick adjust height is great for the spring when we have lots growth. I have been in business for 20 years and I think this is the best allround mover ever.
