    i have a couple of velke mowers. i think they are the best bang for the buck. very easy to maintain and operate. the only con i can think of is the controls are tough on the hand muscles (like writers cramp) until you get those muscles built up. then it is no problem at all. i am going to buy another 48 very soon........clay

    Wright standers are expensive but in my opinion they are the best bang for the buck. Remember your application though I only do lawns around 10,000sf give or take a few k. Their fast, efficient, have rapid height adjustment, electric start, easy to handle even on hilly terrain, don't take up a lot of trailer room. I've never had a problem with hands getting tired I can even operate one with one hand if necessary but I always use both hands. I've had sulkies, belt drive, other types of hydros this machine is the best for me hands down.

    Well yeah I am thinking about getting the 32inch for smaller yards and gates it would be replaceing my 52inch wb because I already have another walkbehind besides the 52inch.

    These Wrights are high productivity mowers .....put any kind of drag device you can find if you want to smash the grass.
