    Hello, Can someone please tell me the eXact differeces between the Sentar & Stander....besides the fact that Sentar has a Seat & Floating Deck...

    I demoed the 36" Stander but Decided against it because of the fiXed Deck...Now they Claim a 36" Sentar will Soon be Avail....How much Longer will the 36" Sentar likely be than the 36" Stander...Will it be as comfortable to operate as the Stander in Standing Position as I Never Plan to Use the Seat?

    So you never plan on using the seat. Why not? I think that once you use it you'll never be standing. The seats on the current model Sentars are extremely comfortable. When properly adjusted it's like a suspension seat with 8 inches of travel. You'll float over rough ground.

    I think I am the only person who can answer this since I own both. The difference are so extreme, there are very little things that are the same. Its like comparing a fixed deck hydro walkbehind with velke to a ZTR.

    It should be just a little longer, not much.

    Standing on a sentar is hard. I hate the seat on mine. I like standing, but the controls are to low to stand for a while. The controls are also to close to operators. You can't lean into the controls like the stander. So I have to sit. I might just sell it and buy another stander.

    Would it help if you removed the seat?

    Is the height adjust 4 Post Pins on the Sentar?

    Also what's the blade bolt hole size...I'd like to run Wavy eXmark mulch blades w/the Wright Mulch Kit...From what I understand they only have solid foil lift blades avail...

    I own the sentar and i love it, its really comfortable, the seat just glides. there isnt no standing though, maybe just for a second here and there to see what you are doing. hight adjust is awsome. I could see why some people like stander, if you want to stand, its the best there is.
