I've heard of 'em too but I hear they're fixed decks so they're hard to adjust height from Bermuda to Fescue for example. I hear the Great Dane Super Surfers are "floating" deck and have adjustable decks. I don't speak from experience, just what I've heard on here. I do see the crew that does our apartment complex on Wrights and they will fly.

Too bad they don't make them with a 42" deck. The fixed deck is the only thing holding me back from buying a Stander.

I have one. Cuts great. A lot of power. Can hold hills better than any other ZTR. I only wish I bought a 52" instead of the 61" So I can use it with the two standers I have on the same jobs. I might trade or sell it for a 52" model. I heard something about a 36" sentar. I guess we will just wait and see.

For compactness. I can get two 52" stander and a 61" sentar and get them on a 14' trailer and still be under its load limit. You can only get two regular ZTR on a 14' trailer and mostly likely over its load limit.

Yep.

Try one of each and used it for 4 hours. You will hate it for the first 15 mins, then you will love it after 4 hours. Trust me. I have seen more people buy standers and sentars this way.
