    I love everything about my new stander except the ride quality. Has anyone modified the their stander with a cushioned platform? Is there an aftermarket platform?

    If you ready your owners manual, it state "The operator should bend thier knees slighty" if you lock your knees your are just going to get a hard ride. Also your air pressure in the rear tires should be about 18-20psi.

    The air pressure is good and I do bend my knees. The ride is still poor. It would be great if there was a spring platform like they have on the great dane.

    Trust me, it accutually can make the ride worse. I have driven both and the stander is still more comfortable. If you wanted one with a spring platform. You should have bought the stander ZK.

    Try these moonshoes. PLUS, it'll make trimming a whole lot more fun.

    Try lowering the air pressure more, I did this on my JD 647a and it made a world of difference and I even have the cushioned platform.
