    Maybe if it has the rapid height adjustment....in our area people are selling the ones without the height adjuster.

    See if you can demo it for a week. I have heard some people have problems with their knees, ankles,etc from bouncing around on those machines. At least demo it without the cutting blades on for 30 minutes or more just riding around on some bumpy grass to see if it effects your body.

    I am picking my stander up for $4000 (USD) brand new out the door. So no..I dont think you are getting a good deal. It is also the 36".

    Sounds like a terrible price to me. Darn near retail.

    Do yourself a favor. Buy a small Z rider instead. Much less wear and tear on your body and way less fatigue. There are some nice 34" + riders out there.

    Ditto that...Stander is for fun just a few months but when real accounts with big money coming in...the Z is the answer everyday, everymonth and year.
    No Z no honey:weightlifter:

    I could let you have the one I was going to buy. It will cost you $4500 which includes shipping to your door.

    Again, let me know....right now its in Ohio. The ONLY reason I am apprehensive about buying it is due to getting it across the border. I have been lucky doing it with my last two purchases and dont want to try a third......The unit is a 36" stander and it is brand spanking new. You would be buying it direct from a dealer.

    If I can get it shipped here for 4500 I would do it, let me know.
