    Hey i was on the great dane site and i saw they have a new surfer zero turn stander. It is a 32" so i figure it will fit through any gate. I have seen some small gates and it looks like this would fit through all of them... looks like there running $4800 but they are nice mowers....

    I have a 36" surfer and it does well fitting through the back gates. A 32", as you said, would pretty much guarantee that you are getting in their backyard.

    I have a 36' stander and I like it. I think it is an 04 model. I don't know about there standers but there riders don't seem to be made as well as the ones a few years ago. But I haven't looked at the new ones lately.

    That's a pure statement of opinion. You ask 10 people you'll get 10 different opinions on this.

    Been round and round on this 2 bazillion times.

    The new 34" Great Dane Surfer looks like it has some nice inovations--it looks way better than the old triple-blade 36" Super Surfer. What do you all think of the location of the hydro pumps--next to the engine, rather than behind it? That puts the engine farther back. With the location of the gas tank and battery also rearward, it looks like it will have almost as good of weight distribution as the small frame twin blade Wright Standers--although the tires are too small.
