I'm gonna lay down some Lawnsite fodder and try to get back ontrack here. Since I made this post I have been schooled on my statement about the worst stander vs a ZTR on hills. Last year I had an account with a hill that required my 36 WB to be dragged out of the trailer to get it cut. The house sold and a other LCO is now cutting it. I do the lawn next door and watched them cut that hill with a ZTR. Ther's no way I'd take my stander on it but then again I run what is going to be known as the worst stander ever made.Couldn't leave it that just because I already know its going to be a bad day. My OPINION is the tha stander is more efficiant. It goes where a ztr cant. The worst stander is going to be as good as any ztr on hills. If you going to be on a mower for more than a hour at a time, a ztr would be a good choice and employees would probably rather sit than stand.
