    My dealer usually works with me, I expect them to make money but not thousands on one purchase?

    I looked at the fixed deck 61 stander x. It was $2800 cheaper at the expo. I wish I had a reliable dealer here.

    I guess that is thousands cheaper. That's buying direct?

    i too use a grandstand and i have to disagree with anyone that says they are bad on hills.

    maybe i don't know what a hill is but on the hills i have, i mow them weekly with perfection using the grandstand. i've never used a push mower for a hill.

    in fact other than it being a little difficult to service i have to disagree with all the other con's listed as i have certainly not found that to be true in any way, shape or form for me.

    the pro's are right on though.

    Just FYI, you have options for both John Deere and Wright on your list. The old JD Quicktracks are different from the ones they are currently selling. The new ones are made by Wright - same mower just painted green.

    Just have to agree to disagree. Hills are really a pointless subject when it comes to stand ons. Too subjective. Where I live there are really steep hills on many properties where a stand on simply cannot mow. For other parts of the country a stander may be able to tackle any hill in that particular area.
