IF I were to say anything negative about that truck it would be about the mirrors. Not sure if you could adjust them or not...but I think they *Should* be closer to level.
Yeah I like it slightly raked....I had the bard cranked to the max for most of the summer, then when I started towing the dump trailer around even when empty it made it look like the truck was way over-loaded so I turned the bvack down a couple turns so at least now when I have the dump trailer empty its level haha. I have actually had a set of AirLift air bags and the compressor sitting in my garage for this truck for about a month, but I've been spending all my free time doing work on the new '99 to get it ready to go for winter.

I love the mirrors, they have the convex mirror built in for towing and they actually extend out about 6" even though I never use that feature.

His lawn was one of the only ones that would anger me during spring and fall. The grass just grows super thick. His neighbor though was just about as easy as mowing can get, minus the rediculous fishing line to keep the geese out!

Yeah I just trim on the other side of that every other week. No one has complained yet.

Picked up another Stander. Its a 2003 52" 19hp. Has 720 hrs, all residential use (guy used it to mow his 5 acres, it averages out to 3.4 hrs a week). Has all maintenance records and everything. Its actually is really good shape for the hours, hydros are tight and responsive, price was right and we needed another big mower REALLY bad. Now I need a bigger trailer cuz all 3 mowers wont fit on mine anymore!



also in that pic you can see the new rack I made for the front of the trailer. It holds 3 BP blowers.....I looked at those new RedMax EBZ8500s last week and I think one would look nice on there
