    A local dealer wants me to demo a 2005 17/52 Wright Stander with 160 hours when it comes in next week. He wants $4000. Good deal? Good mower? I'm thinking it'd be under powered with the 17. Thanks in advance for any replies

    It is probably going to be underpowered. I have a G.D. Surfer 52" w/20 hp. Kohler, and it could use a little extra at times. BUT, then, look at the price. That is not bad for that machine.The decision is yours. Buy it, use it and have a for sale sign on it all the time you are using it. Make a little profit off of it.

    Not enough power to run the deck and the hydros in a stand on machine!

    Not enough power! If it had like a 20 or more on it it would be a steal around here.

    We run 19 HP Kawasaki's on the two new 52" Standers the company I work for bought and they are the lowest I would want. Not even close to enough power on an irrigated lawn that's got a fertilization program! I would want either the 23 or 25 HP Kawasaki on a 52". But you can always buy the mower and buy a larger engine for it.
