They make a good product, the things we did not like about them were that the operators get tired of standing and it was hard to get close to some trees ect. because you are so tall standing on the machine rather than sitting.

I fixed one a Stander for a guy (I do a lot of mechanic work for other companies too). To test it out I cut part of my backyard (which is about 2 acres). I couldn't wait to get off the thing. With their design ALL of the shock absorbing is done by your lower back. It's very stressful and tiring. Your lower back will be killing you if you cut more than 10 minutes on it. You can't flex you knees like a Velkie - so all the energy is directly transferred to your back.
A field demo/rep stopped me last year (out of no where on my route) and had me field demo several of their mowers. I hated them.... same problem. They're a unique design - but not well thought out for operator fatigue and ease of use. They were also a little bit of a beeeacth to work on..... lots of stuff crammed together. I wouldn't buy one. If I was given one, I'd probably sell it and buy something else.

Ok - here's my annual survey. Taxes are now being tallied - so everyone knows by now.... How much did you spend on FUEL last year?

We spent just over 21k
