    ;)I thought i had made up my mind on what we were going to get but then my dealer calls me and sez he was thinking of me and he thought the best way for me to go was to get a stander now and the week before we decited that we were going to go with a hustler trimstar 36''.
    Now i can get a stander 36'' for the exact same price but im still thinking of how much money i can save by getting a quick 36''

    I'd go with the stander. I started w/ walk behinds a 44 and a 52", added a hustler ZTR 52" then sold the toros and went w/ great danes a 48" and 52" plus always had a 21" Now the standers are used the most. They are alot faster than the wb but not quite as fast on large open areas as the hustler ZTR. I'm sure in all places faster than the trimstar. True 2 wheel control vs 1 hydo pump on the quick 36. Less fatigue than walking or turning the quick 36 too. I'm thinking of the quickie 32 but this will replace a lot of 21 work for me.

    go with the stander, never going to produce as much or be as comfortable with a walk. walks are a thing of the past. i haven't found anything i cant mow with a stander

    Thanks guys thats what i needed to hear, I was leaning to the stander too becaust of the compactness of is and a hughe plus is that we dont have to walk behind so yeah you can go alot faster, I think thats what im going to go with and i was looking at the demetions of the unit and it is about a foot smaller long ways than the hustler trimstar.
    My dealers price tor the hustler trimstar $4700
    My dealers price for the wright stander $4799

    Wow $4799 for a wright stander. What specs if you don't mind. I am looking to purchase a 52 inch adjustable this month. Trying to determine a good price. Thanks.

    but for that price...why not sit down??? You can get a mini-z for 5 grand. I started w/ a ZTR so maybe I'm just spoiled....but I would never walk or stand if given the choice.
