    First of all what do you guys think about the John Deere Quik Trak's? I have the option of buying one and wonder if it's worth it.
    Second, it's a 2005 model, 54" deck with 175 hours and the guy wants $4000. Sound fair?
    What are the advantages or disadvantages with these?

    The Wright stander is WAY better. I've demoed them both. The JD lacks responsiveness/smoothness on turns IMO.

    I bought a 2004 JD Quik Trak 48" deck, 19hp Kawasaki...got it this past March for just under $4,000.
    I like the mower. It works much better on the small yards I mow than my mid-mount Z did.
    My buddy has a Wright Sentar Sport...I tried it out recently and it does have more responsiveness and smoothness.
    If I were buying again and could spend the cash for a new mower...I would look at a Wright instead of the Deere...as far as standers go.
