Used surfer....spent about 10 hours cleaning it up. It has about 400 hours.
Let's try this again...
Deere surfer with 400 hours
Deere 36" gear with about 50 hours
Both cleaned up well and should help me in the coming season.
what size deck did u get
The surfer is a 54" with a 23hp kaw
The 36" has (I think) a 13 hp kaw (LIKE NEW)
I'm not real big on gear drives, but it will be perfect for those gated back yards.
lemme know how u like the surfer good luck wit both machines
Everyone is telling me that the JD surfer will not hold hills as well as the Wright Stander. I have never been on either, so there is no way to tell, yet. My properties are mostly flat, so I am hoping for good things. In addition, I have been told the cut is about a B- on overall satisfaction. Does anyone have any additional comments on quality of cut, or hill hugging capability of the surfer?
A friend of mine has one and loves it. He can't speak good enough about it. If i didn't have to collect so much grass i would have bought one.
I've used a Great Dane Super Surfer which is the same thing and the only positive thing I have to say about them is the suspension foot-plate makes a big difference on rough lawns. In my opinion, the Wright Stander is in a league of it's own. They are not very good at holding hills, they will really test your driving abilities if you mow any hills.
Your right the Deere Quik Traks are in a higher class!
2nd Danes and Deeres are not the same mower. Similar but not the same.
I Like mi
