    Alright here's what I will have in 07:

    Redmax BC-2600
    Redmax EXZ-2500
    Stihl BR-420D or Redmax EB-4401
    Honda Commercail 21"
    Bobcat 36" Hydro or Wright 36" Stander.

    My dad says those are the best for the money. I have always liked Redmax and are stuck on them but what mowers do you guys thinks is better? A Bobcat 36" Hydro floating deck, w/ sulkey for $5600 or the Wright 36" Stander for $5300?

    BTW I have 17 accounts this year and hoping to have 30 by next.

    I was just looking at those standers (I googled them) what is the point of them? why not a sit down?

    I can see the difference between a walk behind and a ride on but those standers are getting very close to a rider, no?

    The standers hace a better center gravity and also are a little faster. Since you are leaning/standing you don't have to be tied in with a seat belt, so its easier to get on and off.
    They also take hills much better then a Z.
