    I noticed another picture (2 actually) of this new "stander" in the new issue of Landscape Mgmt. BUt there is still little info on this baby. I went to their website and found nothing. I also noticed their hype on "7" gauge iron decks. (probably because they previously had some soft looking stamped decks)

    Anyway, I'd like any info you may have...looks like a nicer version of the Wright. I say that because it has a floating, easily adjustable deck. (which is the only thing I don't like about Wright)

    I saw they new JD at the NJLCA show last week, it's pretty much a green GD super surfer with a Jd deck, looks pretty good though.

    Morning Guardian,

    Last week I posted a thread on the standing JD. Went to an Open House at my JD dealership alst Thurs. Tested the proto-type briefly. It will go over curbs easily and the deck can be adjusted just a quickly.

    A couple of reasons I did not wait before I bought my Wright Stander is that it is due to be out of production and at the dealerships by early May. Cannot wait that long.

    I did not fit on it as well as the WS. I'm 6'4" and was a little 'stooped' when on it. The WS was perfect- allowed me to stand straight. Also, I was not completely convinced this was not just a reworked Great Dane. It did not have a solid, firm feel that the WS did.

    Cordially,
    Sheppard

    Just went t a JD dealer last week. JD bought Great Dane out. The JD stander is a Dane with a JD 7 gauge steel deck. Interesting to see how well this will work out................

    When I talked to my JD dealer he told me that this unit had a floating deck not a solid deck like the old dane surfer. Does anyone know if thats true ?

    Everything else seems to be what I suspected as well.

    Thanks Sheppard + others-

    I really liked the Wright Stander I used last summer, but wanted a floating deck. Somehow, I have not connected with the sentar, so thats why this JD has my attention.

    I guess I'll just wait and see in MAY how it feels!
