Is that the Tail Gator ramp made in Idaho...? Can you post more pics of that specific set up and deployment...?...?

Sorry, seeing WAM and 32" in the same sentence I had to read the post again

I like that 150 setup with the ramp, how much do they cost to fab and install?

Please, laugh as hard as you must...get it ALL out.

Seriously, a 48 would not do very well on most of my tight/hilly lawns...cuz I KNOW a 36 wouldn't even get through nearly 10 gates leading to BIG backyards. So, I do them ALL with a 32. No trailer or 21...then, just back my truck into my garage each night while getting 22mpg. I know I get a chuckle out of the simplicity of it all.

When I think of WAM's I think of the ones pulled by 90+ HP tractors .

I demoed a 32" stander for the reasons you said above.

someone mentioned the Tailgators, where do I find them? Saw the video for tailgatoraccessories, but can't find them, or tailgators on the web?

What did you think of your demo?


FWIW:
A Wright Stander 32" at 605 lbs dry wt will be over 850 lbs with a full tank and me (210) on it while riding on 18 x 6.5-8 tires -> will be a rutting machine, unless we're dang dry. This will not work during our Spring's around here.


IFF Toro/ExMark will add some power (or at least optional power) and make the discharge chute larger, I think they'll have a true winner with these 30s. I'll be intrigued IFF they'll address both of the above details.
