Does anyone make a stander for taller folks?

Interested in a stander, but I'm 6'6" and have stood on a few of them. The ones I've tried out doesn't fit me, or don't have adjustments to raise the controls up. Is there any such stand on? Any help is appreciated.

I'm 6'6" as well and I have found wright standers are very comfortable. You have to use your knees more but its very doable. The newer models (the black pad) have a bigger and longer pad that makes it easier for me vs. the older models (tan pad) weren't as much because my shine use to hit the bar in front of the hydros since the pad was to short and small for me.

Have you ever considered a gravley pro stance I have one and I love it. But I'm pretty short so can't give my opinion there

I'm 6'3" and I run a grandstand 36 without any problems. Only time height is an issue for me is when I run into a low hanging branch.

I did get on a pro stance. Also a v ride. The gravely was a little more accommodating than the other. The gravely dealer near me will have fleet pricing at there open house, so that'll help some. I'll have to check out a wright. Only problem is the dealer is about 40 miles. I'd be willing to drive that for a more comfortable machine. Don't see any wrights around my area. I'll try to get over there this week.

That has me a little concerned as well. I guess if I hit limbs enough my clients will get a free tree trimming.
