    I am thinking of, for the first time, buying a machine new. I have hooked into a big commercial account that will require an upgrade from my fleet of walk behinds.

    Any suggestions? I need to decide between a Wright Stander 52, Exmark LazerZ HP 52, Scag Wildcat 52", or a Hustler Z XR7 54".

    Any advantages jumbing curves with any of them.

    How are the Triton, Velocity Plus etc. decks?

    If its a larger property I wouldn't rec. a compact rider like the ones you described. Go with just a full size Lazer or Scags full size rider.

    That was originally my plan, but I also want something that I can do other accounts with. Some of my bigger accounts are now requesting that I bag and I need something that is agile and can bag efficiently. Though I suppose I could go with the full size machine and use it for the accounts that require it. I just hate bagging with the walkbehinds.
