    I found a Wright Stander 36" for sale. It has 840 hours on it, and I would say it is in pretty good condition. The seller is asking $3500.00 for the unit. Think this is a good deal?

    I think that is too high. With 840 hours on it, its best days are gone. Just my opinion.

    What is the reason you are looking at the stander. From your equipment list - looks like you have most everything covered.We didnt have much luck with the stander - would prefer a walk behind. I have to agree with Coonman, price seems a liitle high unless the unit is in mint condition.

    I am looking to get rid of the 36 Ferris Single Hydro unit and replace it with a Stander 36. This unit will make life a lot easier.

    That is quite a few hours on that machine! They will run alot more if they are properly maintained. I would not go over $2,900 to $3,000. My dealer had one for $2,900 with 930 hours and it had a brand new engine. They had also warrantied the deck, so it was brand new also.

    Price seems a bit steep all things considered. I have a 48" stander that I use all the time. I also run alot of Ferris mowers as well that are also our primary mowers. I consider 36" mowers back yard mowers for homes, with gates, many of which have pools as well. On downside to the standers is that you cant lift the front wheels off the ground to avoid obstacles like pool copings, grade variations, etc... I have been a bit reluctant to but a 36" stander for that reason alone. You may be better with a dual drive hydro walkbehind. I demoed a single drive hydo and passed. Its a poor setup with the thumb contol reverse, etc...Just my opinion.

    Speaking of Wright Standers.....I found a 19hp/52" with 325 hrs for $4000. I believe it is an '06. Good deal? I'm not very familiar with these mowers.

    Prob too high.

    Keep in mind this mower could die tomorrow with a major failure in engine ($1200-$1500, hydros and motors ($600 ea) or something else.

    That's a what, $4500-$5000 mower, new? If so, not a good value at all.
