    Not new.

    You'll need twenty two hundred.

    Check Lesco, they (Sheffeild) finance. You could do well with twelve hundred down and finance the rest.

    If you are talking about a Wright Stander, they would be way out of the price range you listed anyways. Standers are much more than $1500, even used. The cheapest you will get a new commercial 36" WB for is most likely going to be $1999. Look for some used or demo models. Once you get one buy yourself a good sulky and you can stand on that, and yes a sulky would be worth it.

    A sulky is a stand on attachment that can be used on most any commercial grade walk behind. What it basicly is is a jointed foot plate with wheels on each side that pulls you around. That must be what you were thinking of when you said walk behinds you stand on. Most sulkies will run you about $200+.

    There are a couple of compaines that make a Z that you stand on instead of sit. That is what I thought you were talking about.
