I've had a wright stander for about 5 years. It's a 2000 model, bought it with over 2000 hours. It had a newer 23hp Kawasaki motor on it when I bought it.
This machine has been unbelievable, built like a tank is an understatement . Very few moving parts, very easy to see over the deck. Extremely stable on hills. So much more than what I thought it would be, and I knew it was highly regarded because most landscapers use them in the Chicago area. When toro. Great Dane and ex mark copy it, it can't be bad! It's the original stander.

Uh,....if you have a stand up zero turn where do you put the beers? 4 acres would drain a 6 packer pretty quickly.

?

I am new to zero turn mowers.... PO had a 60 Dixie. Mine is a 36" Dixon...


But my yard is pretty steep, and if I loose traction or turn it wrong it just takes off on me....Completely out of control. Almost bailed off of it once....

Common?

I have a ten year old bobcat and it runs like a champ ... Can even cut a small section of aluminum fencing if you let my wife drive it!

Thanks for the advice guys, I will begin my search this week and see where it takes me.
Hondaprlud, thanks for the info on the place, I know that area well having grown up and live in Brimfield for roughly 18 years.

I saw a Ferris with the Cat diesel yesterday and fell in love, just not with the price tag.....upwards of $15k+! Outta my range but one can always dream!

I don't have any experience with ZT, but I have worked the living snot out of various sizes (18-80hp) of Kubota tractors & UTVs for the past 20+ years without any sizable issues other than regular maintenance. I would guess their ZT diesels are of equal reliability but not cheap.

Bought a mower!!!

Well, I found a deal that was too good to pass up and made the purchase. I picked-up a 2007 Exmark zero turn with the 60" deck and ultra-vac bagging system. We used it a couple of times over the weekend to pick up leaves and it does great but I will need to put new tires on it for spring. Any advice on the regular turf tires vs. something a bit more aggressive like the bar tires? I don't want to rip apart my lawn but I do have some decent hills we are mowing and I want to make sure I am not sliding down them sideways!!!

Josh approves of the mower and took his place upon it the night I brought it home!

Yeah, I try to make sure I buy with the outgoing season to get the best deals! Buy mowers and boats going into the winter!!! It was just too good of a deal to pass up but now I really need to build that pole building to store all of the stuff.
