The vantage sucks on hills and doesn't do well with ditches like a lazer will. The lazer is far easier to get on the trailer and off. The lazer is way faster to raise the deck height, which you need to do alot of mowing around hills and ditches. Plus the standers are too expensive for what they are. You may or may not regret buying a vantage, but I know you won't regret the lazer. If you want the lazer too be smoother get the air front tires instead of no flats and get a grammer seat. The grammer seats are very expensive, but their is bother better. I'm standing by my statements that the lazer is superior, I don't care what anyone on thi thread says. What do all the lco in your area use ztrs, not standers. It's that way, because ztrs are better. This thread just happened to draw out all the stander lovers because of the title

Thanks for that input. I just talked to a buddy who runs a 52" Z and he has a bad of a back as I do. He said I'd be crazy to go stander over Z. However, he said he wishes he had a 48 for some gates here and there. I don't have any postage stamp sized jobs, mostly corner lots and up to 4 acres for one. It's going to come down to the deal I get in the morning, but I think I'm leaning 48 Z.
Edit: I also have some wicked rough areas with choppy hillsides, ditches and stuff. This turns me to the Z for the deck adjust on the fly with the foot.
