    I can't stand the up and down and up and down that ya gotta do on a ztr, kills my back, pull up to a gate and ya gotta drag yourself up and off of it, come up to a stick or a piece of trash or a rock and ya gotta climb up and off of it. Standers ya just step off of it, that's why I like em personally. I went from all WB's to Standers.

    I like the concept of not having to pick up the can, even a 2.5 can seems heavy at the end of the day. Just pick up a hose and pump it in, cool! How much does it hold?

    They sell gas tanks that go in the bed online. Best thing i ever did. With the time you will save at the gas station at 7 am you will be able to squeeze in a few extra yards a week to make up for the cost of the in bed gas tank.

    at the end of the day i am beat up too and putting 12 gallons of fuel in my mower is not too fun when you've worked 12 hours straight.

    I could only imagine how much fuel my dad uses. He's a farmer and right now since its harvest season those harvesters drink fuel probably a thousand bucks a day in fuel.
    His new combine is a big ole New Holland with 650hp and it runs a 45 foot wheat head and either a 16 or 20 row cornhead I forgot

    6 gallons
    It's handy mine sets behind the gooseneck the hose will reach all four corners of my 9ft chassis flatbed. Thinking adding a Y fitting to run 2 lines so each side has its own
