    Does anyone know if they plan on coming out with a Stander, equipped with an adjustable mowing deck?

    define adjustable. if you mean a floating deck, i doubt they will. i think it would add too much to the over all length, and right now the standers are the shortest length machines made. (so far as i know anyhow)
     
  3. It's called a Great Dane, or a John Deere.

    You are better Off with a turf tracer. The fixed deck is why i didn't get One Of the standers.

    Wright does have a hybrid of the Stander which is called a Sentar. The differences are that it only comes in 52" and 60" decks, it does have the same controls as the Stander and also has a fold down seat. It really is more designed as an answer to a sit down rider as opposed to the original "standing" version, but is does have a floating and easily adjustable deck.

    John I love my exmark metro wb, but seriously how can one compete with a machine that cuts grass at nearly 8mph? Never used a tracer, how is it?

    I realize everyone's still stuck in 1966, but my Hustler WB can cut at about 10 mph, and 6/8 mph is it's normal pace. Plus, it turns faster and is more maneuverable than those "K" turning Z's ;)
    Yes, it's not stock, but that's not my fault. Just beause the people at Hustler can't get it right, doesn't we have to settle for it.
