Just reading the review on the John Deere Quik-Trak 657A stander in Turf magazine. Well if you go by the review it would be a machine well worth a look. They claim that employees were practically fighting over who got to drive it. They said they timed it side by side with a rider on a large lot and the employees got done I think 18 minutes faster on the stander. Well I'm very surprised. I would have thought a stander would be great for small lots but not large ones as the article suggest. I mean looks like a stander would be harder to track strait on large lots. I have never operated one so I'm reading this as a novice no doubt. Other benefits includes they attached a trimmer rack to it and the employee would simple stop, step off and trim areas that were distant from the truck, thus saving time. That's much harder to do on a regular ZTR. Another advantage and I want some feedback on this is they liked it for steep area's. They felt much more secure standing in case the machine did happen to get away they could just step off. I'm not sure how well they preform against a good ZTR or WB on hills but the fact that you can lean and get off easy makes sense. Very interesting article. It seems some of you that try a stander won't go back. So why is the market share so small for standers? I've never seen on in the field, only at the Expo. I often drive a stand up fork lift, pull cat type fork lift at a factory and to be honest even on the smooth concrete floor your legs are tired after a long shift. Wouldn't this be the case riding a stander for 8-10 hrs a day? The article didn't say anything about price or at least I missed it if it did. So how do them compare to a regular ZTR of the same size and power? Lot's of questions and I'm looking for a lot of feedback. I had pretty well written off a stander as a small city block type mower but what say you???????????
