What did you use before the stander. Whats the cutting deck and how much time and easier did a stander make your jobs.

I had a 36 bobcat abd got a 36 stander.....I have a lot of gated yards that's why I chose 36 but save a bunch of time especially in fall when I'm goin back and forth to dump leaves. I also use it when blowin off driveways or need to get to a spot on a bigger property to trim. I suggest you get one just make sure you have the work for it since it cost me 7500

I do gutters also, but I use a hand held blower instead of a back pack, I feel it is a lot safer. I also ground a special scraper that threads into a paint extension so I can get to the grim a little easier. The other thing I use is a plumbers hand held rotor rooter to clear those spoutsí that are to clogged to just blow clear. I have one customer that has a tile roof that I can't get up on so I have to go around the entire house with a ladder (a real pain).

Nice work. I like your set-up. I just can't see me spending that much on a stander. It is less expensive to buy and maintain if I stick to walk-behinds. Hope you are very successful. David
