    Atleast with a Sentar, you can stand or ride. Alot harder to change the deck height on the Stander.

    I have to agree with metro-hp, the deck adjustment would be worth it for me.

    hey good advice, have you used the sentar? Im 80 percent sure it will be the sentar, I just havnt used one yet. ive used great dane surfers for years.

    I want to know how the sentars ride, are they easy to zero turn and go at a good speed?

    You're willing to drop 7-8K on a Sentar, and have never demoed one?? Don't worry,... I can tell you it is an awesome machine. We had a Wright rep bring us a Sentar, 48" Stander, and a Velke mower to one of our accounts on Thursday. Very outstanding machines, but the Stander fit our needs better than a Sentar. Good luck with your new mower..

    One important input...
    I went to a JD dealer who also carries Wright 's product. He has two 52/23 Kawi Sentars for sale, they were a swap or trade-ins or switch something like that with very low hours, the previous owners swapped them for Stander instead, so go figure!
    I did not demo but sitting on it, it seems awkward to stand on mower with that foldable seat poking your butt all the time, I don't want to mow and get bothered by the seat though, I would rather stand free and clear like Stander...the Sentar height adjustment is neat very clearly calibrated.
    Tough choice...I know.
    just a little info for thought. (I won't buy Sentar, only Stander, if you want to sit, the Z is for).

    Hopefully I'll get to demo both Tuesday. The Stander is used (100 hours), what do you Wright folks think would be a fair offer on the used Stander? (52")
