I have used toro walkbehinds w/velky for 14 yrs . Now I have developed tendonitus in both hips. My physical theropy is getting me better but I have identified 2 things that need to change that may be the source of the injury. My work boots needed to go for tennis shoes to prevent the high tops pulling on the tendons. Now it seems the stance required to stand on the velky and opperate the t-bar may aggrivate the hip tendons as well. I looked at the wright sentar as a possible alternative for my mowing conditions. A ZTR may be an alternative but the 52" sentar sport has a smaller footprint on my trailer than the 48" toro & folded velkey. Iwould also need a bigger trailer to carry a 52" ZTR and a 36" toro but NOT with the sentar. The local store has a 52" 19hp Kaw they are closing out . They will get back to me with a price on friday they said. Along with my decision is they type of lawn I have . mostly 1/4 acre some small hills. I would prefer the 23 hp Kaw but I'll wait and see the price point they come at me with. This is more of a move for health reasons as I love my toros. I did a search and find favorable ratings for the wright products. Anyone have a simular model to the 52" 19 kaw that can give some detail on their experience with this machine?
