    There are quite a few guys here that run the Danes. Try inserting Great Dane in to the search bar at the top of the page. Should find plenty there. :waving:

    I have a Dane Super Surfer and I love it!

    The Great Dane products have been good to me but I also run ExMark Lazers and they are excellent as well.

    My opinion is you can't make a wrong choice with either.

    Good luck!

    there both great mowers i'd demo both the GD surfers have have a manuverability about them and there somewhat compact so it saves space in your trailer and sometimes its nice to stand instead of sit.
    Exmark is a awesome cutting machine and rides good and I do believe that Exmark has better customer service and parts availablity.

    This is a giant understatement. Great Dane has been a problem since JD bought them. I would never buy one again, and if someone gave me one, i would give it back. Exmark has been virtually problem free, a much better way to spend you money.

    I demoed 3 Great Danes and while I liked the both the Super Surfers I would not buy one, getting parts is PITA. The dealer who gave me the Demo said that they are going down hill as far as getting parts to the dealer.

    To really awnser the question, go here. its the old great dane forum, they used to be a sponcer. The one good thing i can say for them, they didnt edit posts. They took what they had coming, and if you look hard enough, the truth is there.

    You are not comparing apples to apples. But personally I run exmark and love them. They are very reliable. I also have a couple Wright Standers. If you are looking at the chariot I would say look at the Wright Sentar. I don't know may guys that like the Great Dane. I used one for a little while when they first came out and the Stander is much better IMO.
