    Anyone heard of this option from any manufacturers. Gravely has it on Z's.
    My biggest issue with any stander is deck lift on the fly. To make them fully productive there should be a way to raise the deck while mowing to avoid scalping or gouging terrain, and for going over tree roots and low rocks.

    Mine raises via a manual foot-activated lever, it's really not bad, I'm glad they didn't waste hydraulic power on this.
    Only time it wears on me is when I try to keep it half-raised so as to cut over a hump, but beyond that it don't bother much.

    I think he's refering to a Stander and you to a rider.

    We have four ZTR's with foot pedal deck lifts---I don't know how you could implement them realistically on a stander.
