After much research and thought, my partner and I purchased a 36" Great Dane Super Surfer. Most of our lawns are residential and we needed something to get through the gates. We purchased the mulch plate to go alone with it. We bought the mower on Friday and had to order the mulch plate which actually arrived today. We got a chance to use the mower over the weekend our first impression was really good. The mower has lots of power, handled a thick, tall and sloped lawn well without slipping. It was comfortable and the viewing area is really nice. Our price was $4439 plus tax. We felt that we got a good deal. We were looking at the GD Scamper, but decided to go with the stand on. The folks who own the Wright Standers swear by them and we hope to have to same experience.
