    I would go with the Wright the other unit hasn't been out very long and
    very few sold in our market. The Scag is the hot unit.

    I'm doing research this year for next years purchase. I'm currently running a 48" Wright Sentar. I am looking to add a 36" stander when I make the leap. I want to avoid financing and just pay cash, hence the wait. I see that the Scag V-Ride is receiving a lot of positive reviews here, but what is it that gives it the nod over either the Wright or Toro? I to a loner on a 36" Wright last year while my Sentar was in the shop and it was nice. I have a Scag dealer here, but they do not have a demo of the V-Ride available.

    I have worked on the sentar and most things aren't easy. But I have looked at some of the other units and they look like an nightmare to work on. The exmark guy was doing a demo and the unit stopped. Then we got to see how difficult it was to debug the safety sensors. He eventually just pushed it in the trailer and headed home.
