    Just found out from my local dealer that Great Dane has no interest financing available for 24 months on all of their new Chariot and Chariot LX riders!

    What an awesome deal.

    This will save me an approx. $500 to $600 over the life of the loan!!

    Check it out...the new Dane riders are awesome!!:

    Just make sure you pay it off in 24 months, or you will be stuck with a 25% interest rate

    Do you currently own a Great Dane?If yes, do you find it hard to get parts? I have a dealer real close to me that sells them and has sold alot of them.Alot of the ones I have seen the paint looks like it just flakes off very easy,is this so? I have heard from others around that own them that it takes a while to get parts as simple as belts,is this so? I demoed the SS and it was rough on my back but Iam a real big guy.My helper likes it alot and I may get one.I just dont know yet, also Wright standers are made here in MD and I heard if I go to the factory I can get a good deal.I like the floating deck on the stander though.Bottom line,has anybody had problems getting parts?

    I own all GD and have had great success. As far as parts I havent had any problems getting belts and minor stuff, dealer always had them on hand. More complicated parts I cant comment on I havent had to replace anything major yet, if/when I do I hope finding parts wont be a problem.

    I have the new dane chariot and it is awsome. Parts are not a problem if you know who to call. If a dealer can't get them call General Power Equipemnt Company the distributor at 1-800-508-3246. They cover just about Florida to Maine. They will direct you to a quality dealer or take care of it themselves. Hope this helps

    Parts have not been a problem for me as I have 2 very good dealers in my area.
    I am very happy with the Super Surfers and I am now trying to of the Chariot LX riders with Kohler EFI engines.

    Hope this helps....

    Danes are great! no pun intended, If I wern't happy with them I wouldn't have bought another one.

    The LX is about the best as I can see, no gear boxes, no 90 deg bends on the belts.

    Yes I like hustler but I like the stick steering better, And do you need to go 15 mph?

    I would buy another one and probly will
