I have not used either one but I would consider the dealers...which one will give you better service, give you a loaner, have more parts in stock, etc. Demo both of them on some yards that you do and then chose which one you want. Also do a search and see what other members have posted about them.

Stander. If you want a reliable machine. And they now have a rapid deck height adjustment. If you want a unreliable Great Dane.

The stander can hold hills better than any machine. The Great Dane is even worse than most ztrs on hills.

i have owned both and i would say go with the stander. when great dane switched to the floating deck, the machine can no longer take hills. the stander is one of the best machines i have ever run on a hill. plus now the standers do 10 mph.

Just go try the two back to back, and you will likely want to buy the Wright.
Thats what I did and easily wound up with the stander. Love it, will be buying a 32 or 36 in addition next year. Amazing on the hills. Way lower center of gravity and smaller footprint than the Surfer.
Good luck!

I have a 48" Super Surfer, and it does not hold hills as well as an Exmark 52" Lazer HP. But the Great Dane is a secondary machine, so it isn't as important to me. Price was important, I paid $5500 new from Lesco (I'm not a big Lesco customer, others may do better on price). The Wrights with floating deck were quite a lot more, almost $7K. One complaint...no striping kit!

My options within my budget was either a hydo WB, or the Surfer. I went Surfer and I am happy.
