Default Super Surfer pros and cons???

I am wanting to start in the lawn care business this year and wanted to see how the pros on here feel about the Great Dane Surfers.
I dont mind to stand up if it gets the job done.
I am looking a 52" super surfer, what do you guys think?

Do a search there is a lot of good info on this subject.
I researched it when I was in the market and decided to go with the Wright Stander.
I'm very happy with it.

I think I remember reading the surfer was not as good on inclines.

What about stand ups opposed to riding mowers?

stander:
+ better on inclines, because you can move your weight around. smaller foot, print takes up less room on trailer and can fit in smaller places.
- can be bad on knees
sit down Z:
+ better on knees.
- can be bad on back.

What made you ultimately decide to go with that one?

from what I read on this board the Wright is the superior machine.
I physically look at the Gravely and the Wright and read about the surfer on here. I came to the conclusion that everyone was right about the Wright. I love my 52 and plan on buying a 32 once the 52 is paid off

I have not ultimately set my mind to this mower, wanted to see what you guys thought about it. I have looked at this mower and found a great deal on a used one with only 13 hours on it. I can get it fo half the price as a new one, and it still looks brand new.
Are they fast mowers, acres per hour?
Is it hard standing on them for a while?

It would be interesting if you could try it out and see how you like the feel of it.

Anyone else have an opinion on the stand up mowers like the super surfer? Is it hard on you to stand up all day riding these?
