    Any info on the 42" stander would be good.

    1. What is the total width

    2. what is its weight

    3. will it hold a hill as good as a 36 WB

    4. whatÂ’s a good price to pay for one

    5. does the front try and lift going up hills

    6. 2 or 3 blades and how is the cut quality

    1. 42.5"
    2. 595 to 620lbs depends on engine and electric start
    3. Better, since you can shift you weight while riding to gain more traction.
    4. around $4500
    5. yes and no. You can pull a wheelie with it if you got to get over something or are stuck. But you lean into the pad when going up a hill to place more weight on the front.
    6. 2 blade. Cut is very good. Since it has two long blades that have a hight blade tip speed.

    17hp is the only option I believe.

    $4500 was what I last priced it out at, but it was a while ago.

    Just demo one and like it a lot It was a 36 and seemed to have trubble getting traction on hills the tires would want to spin a lot

    Sales guy wants $5000 for 36 or 42 both are 17hp sounds a little high what do you think?

    He is defonetly a volume dealer he's got crates of them all over and sells them out of a wharehouse with no show foor.

    Reduce the rear tire air pressure to 8psi. If you get better traction, then at this pressure. Then put a set of tubes in the tires. To keep the tires on the rim at such a low pressure.

    I would assume the 17hp is electric start. That would be a good price if not try to get him down a little more.
