Went to a local dealer today to get a price on an eXmark 52" ZTR. (new - $7600). Asked about used machines and when we went out back there was a 48" Wright Stander with 22 hours on it for $5200. Price, of course, is important. But as a newbie to mowing, I have a couple questions: First, I'm planning to do residential lawns. What are the advantages/disadvantages of the 48" vs 52" cuts? Second, I'm 50 years old. Physically, how much more taxing (if any) is the Stander vs. a riding mower? The sales guy actually said he found the Stander less sfreeful than the Lazer because his body on the Stander could adjust to the ups and downs better than the Laser could. Third, which gives the better cut? Finally, is that a good price for the Stander? Thanks!!
