    how do Standers compare to ztr's? My local dealer has some good prices on the Great Dane right now, and I'm curious about the standers. It seems like the reduced weight and manuverability would be a plus, but are they actually more productive. By they way, I'm located in WNC where most yards are not totally flat.

    We have various size machines......our Wright Sentar Sport 36" is a nice machine but we essentially replaced 36" WB hydro units so we could ride. It may be a little more productive but probably not much. Most of our yards and commericial are small....when we need 48" we go to ZTR which is a lot more confortable than the Wright, even though we have a seat. The small footprint is nice.
