    I have not used either one but I would consider the dealers...which one will give you better service, give you a loaner, have more parts in stock, etc. Demo both of them on some yards that you do and then chose which one you want. Also do a search and see what other members have posted about them.

    Stander. If you want a reliable machine. And they now have a rapid deck height adjustment. If you want a unreliable Great Dane.

    The stander can hold hills better than any machine. The Great Dane is even worse than most ztrs on hills.

    What's the deal with the
    rapid height adjustment?

    i have owned both and i would say go with the stander. when great dane switched to the floating deck, the machine can no longer take hills. the stander is one of the best machines i have ever run on a hill. plus now the standers do 10 mph.

    Just go try the two back to back, and you will likely want to buy the Wright.
    Thats what I did and easily wound up with the stander. Love it, will be buying a 32 or 36 in addition next year. Amazing on the hills. Way lower center of gravity and smaller footprint than the Surfer.
    Good luck!

    I have a 48" Super Surfer, and it does not hold hills as well as an Exmark 52" Lazer HP. But the Great Dane is a secondary machine, so it isn't as important to me. Price was important, I paid $5500 new from Lesco (I'm not a big Lesco customer, others may do better on price). The Wrights with floating deck were quite a lot more, almost $7K. One complaint...no striping kit!

    My options within my budget was either a hydo WB, or the Surfer. I went Surfer and I am happy.
