    I saw my first Velke Mower by Wright Manufacturing. It's made by the same folks that make the Sentar and Stander. It looks interesting!!! Does anyone have any experience with this unit. It has an awkward set of travel levers but the concept is fascinating. Let me know. Thanks!!!!

    I rode one at expo last yr.Mr.Wright made it look easy.I honestly hated the controls.However I will say, that was the nicest fellow at the show.--a STANDER yes,w/b no..

    Take a look at an H bar, if you are looking for simple, easy on the muscles WB.............
  4. I saw a Velke-Mower last spring. Looked very well built, pretty much like a Stander. It was really fast, more of a Run-Behind than a Walk-Behind. I liked the controls, but not the Velke or any sulky. The 32” seemed like a great deal for me, but since I had a 36” Stander, I decided to just drop the few accounts where I couldn’t get the 36” in the back.

    Not trying to change the subject, but other than the 32” Velke-Mower, I couldn’t see buying one over a Stander.
