    I would maybe take an exmark stander. My only issue with them is knee damage. Just bouncing around all day can't be good.

    I would Buy Like three of them if they had one!...Also so when they sent me a letter asking how my new mower was, In the comment box I requested they look into a stander type mower. Just waiting in what they reply back.

    i would look into them if we had a decent scag dealer around here. Petr51488 mentioned an exmark stander, but toro just did that and i, as were many others, wasnt too impressed.

    Standers are the best thing since sliced bread.
    I love my Wright Stander 36"

    A scag stander should be in production right now, and If not....Why not?

    Competition is great for the consumer, which in the case of commercial mowers, lawn care professionals are the consumer.

    If any one of scag, toro, wright, john deere, or exmark "raised the bar" so to speak on standers, all the others would have to step their game up as well.

    With scags great reputation I would really like to see what they come up with.

    I have bad knees. I prefer my Stander over a rider. Bouncing all day really has no effect on my knees at the end of the day. No lie

    I was going to ask, what is worse

    A. bent knee suspension on a stander with a few bumps in a yard (maybe)


    B. taking a forward step with a locked knee walking and man-handing a WB?

    B is much worse. Think about it, and your taking much less of a toll on your tendons and muscles that drive your body forward by riding rather than walking (sometimes pushing and pulling).

    ZTR's eliminate the tendon and muscles wear, but there is no suspension in your spine, so your back is compacting from top onto bottom all-day
