We switched one WB out for a stander 4 years ago. We liked all things about increasing production, it had floating deck and was a good mulching machine. But we are finding that it just leaves ruts and that is creating a big problem. We normally run 36" WB and not riding units and that was fine. Now when the customer see this damage they say use 21" or I will get Justmow it with his 21". We lose the option to fall back to WB. And yes it is good in theory to try to not run in same exact path but in the real world it doesn't work out. So we aren't going with any more stanters. I don't see how you guys up north that gets rain can deal with it unless your grass is a lot thicker than ours.
