i have never used a stander before and have been back and forth on buying one , how do you rate the standers as far as handling. I do not like belt driven stuff and have not used it very much so maybe that is the case but i know a couple of areas that i mow with my hydro walk behind that a stander cannot , i mean the walk behind slides down its so steep you can barely stand on the ground , so i would probally disagree with you that a stander can mow hills that a walk behind can't but again i do not have any hours on a stander so , certainly not trying to argue , more looking for your opinion on the hillside stability of the stander , and also how does a stander with the foldable plate handle when the operator chooses to walk behind it? Does it handle bad because it needs the rear weight to balance it? Also in your opinion do you think the standers with the foldable platforms are better than the ones where you stand between the wheels? Thanks for your insight.
