    Hey guys. I can't find where everyone posted their setups and such, so feel free to chime in or throw a few pics of your new or old stuff! Here is mine or the one I carry most leaving 5x10 and other ztr and equipment at home.

    This was in the spring. I have a 13hp little wonder behind the stander and 2 redmax ebz8500s in the box

    How do you like the Wright? Ferris? My Metro has the 15hp Kohler command pro on it :-O. Nice setup by the way!! I spend most of my time not mad at competition, but like a kid in the candy store thinking, "what you got?"

    This was a month ago, had an air compressor on instead of my walk behind at the time. Have a 3 place trimmer rack on the driver side

    Honestly couldn't be happier with the stander. Put a rod through the case at 4500 hrs repowered with a 20hp Kawasaki (19 hp Kawasaki original). The ferris is a pre-suspension model but it is still a dream to ride and the hydros are probably the best of any ztr.

    Yardvarkman,

    You have a video on youtube of this stander I think, right?

    I recognize you by the hours on the mower and the fact that you repowered with the 20 and the original was 19.

    I have to ask you, how often do you do oil changes and what oil do you use?

    I run a stander ZK. I admire your setup and the durability you have gotten out of your mower. I hope to get that many hours out of mine.

    Ya that's my mower on YouTube. I change the filter and oil every 50 hours with Rotella Diesel engine oil.

    Cool!

    What weight are you using? 15w40? Rotella is not synthetic right?

    I've been using mobil 1 synthetic 10w30

    How do you like the cut quality of your stander? A lot of guys bash them. But a lot of guys love them too.
