    Well, it had better be here to stay - I just bought two and have two more on order.

    I looked at the unit real closely at my dealer. It is just a Great Dane, painted red. I run Wright Standers and think their design is superior. Have a lot more room on the footplate. The new adjustable height standers are not as good. On the electric strt models, they put the battery right between your feet1 UGHH!

    You are right on about that. The Wright Stander is a MUCH better design.

    Not sure about the design flaws but I looked at both and the Great Dane was really overbuilt. I doubt the structural components would ever wear out. But I am curious, does Gravely own Great Dane? Why this re-badging?
