OK, it's late and maybe I'm just getting loopy. But I just shot this e-mail off to Wright about their Stander mower. I was sitting here looking at an older brochure of theirs. Tell me what you think of the idea. Think it's do-able? And if so, think it can really work the way I'm imagining it? I do. This is the e-mail to Wright: "I just wanted to throw a thought out to you guys (Jim in particular) and see what you (he) thought. It's a little out there, but hear me out. I'm looking for a mower for next year. So many choices as you know, walk behinds, riders, standers, and your in-between mower the Sentar. The biggest problem is one mower may be perfect for a certain type of lawn, but not so great for another. I currently use WB's. But I'd like something I can ride on. The problem is, there are those lawns, or parts of lawns with slopes where a ZTR just won't do. If it's the whole lawn, then I could use a wb on that particular lawn. But if it's just parts of the lawn, then I'd hate to have to walk the whole thing just for those sloped areas. And I sure don't want to switch mowers on one lawn. So I'm sitting here looking at your Stander thinking, boy, I like the idea of that mower! It would be so great for most of my lawns. But what will I do when I get to that sloped part? If only there were a way to step off and walk behind it on that part, then jump back on when I get to flat land. Hmmm. If only! So, here goes. What if your Stander had a way that the controls could rotate backwards just a bit? Just enough so you could walk behind it for a short time, then push them forward and hop back on! Something that could be done quickly, almost on the fly. Pull a handle, or flip a switch or something. In the end, it wouldn't look much different, if at all. Keep it clean and simple. Not like that monstrosity the Rich Convertible mower! ;-) That is obviously different because it's a "sit down" ZTR that converts to a WB. I would think yours is do-able since it's a stander and not a sit down. You're controls are already almost there. Just figure a way to rotate them back and forth cleanly and easily. I see that as having the potential to be one of the most versatile mowers on the market. A Stander/WB. Truly the best of both worlds! People could do away with the WB's that they are forced to keep on their trailers just for those few areas a ZTR is a problem. I really look forward to hear what you think of all this. Thanks for your time." So, what do you guys think? Is it too out there?
