Ditto on Axl's request.

Have you tried a Grandstand? Opinions?

I had one for a couple days and was very impressed.

Our supervisor ran one for a couple of days and could not get used to it. A little bumpy, slower than a lazer and scalped. He said if we had to get one the wright one was smother and faster

I had a 60" for a week, first off very dangerous on hills, when it slide on wet grass then caught it bucked the operator off, pulls wheelies up hills and you have to walk it, doesn't load well on my isuzus almost flipped backwards, very slow compared to a next mower, employees were not happy cutting large open sites, kinda a pain to adjust deck heights,

I guess I like the lazer next. I'm buying 3 of them on Friday,

I used to have a great Dane surfer 52" back in 2001 I liked it but it scalped alot. But it was a better machine than this exmark stander.

I cut larger Commerical and large hoas so a stander doesn't have it's place for me, but if all I cut was condos I would say its a must!!!

If you demo a 34 horse Kohler 60" exmark next you will never buy anything else, my employee says its the best mower he's ran and he's ran them all.

Diesel is the only way to go. Especially now that they use Kubota's.
