Walk behind vs. rider

I have a dixie chopper that I really like and a 26" exmark for small yards, but I have been thinking of getting a walkbehind. Im wondering if I would like the walkbehind enough to sale the chopper. I like riding on the big lots but I have found out a rider is not a priority most of the time, I think it just adds to your overhead more than anything. My question is can I cut as fast with a walkbehind hydro with a sulky as I can with my chopper? Is the rider worth the added expense, I mean its paid for but I could always sell it if I liked the walkbehind enough. I think I could almost get 2 walkbehinds for a little more than I paid for the chopper, maybe a small one like a 36" and then a 48", what do you think? Another thing is would the hydro be that much faster than my 26" metro I mean I know there is a size difference but still can mow at 4mph with the metro. Just thinking out loud fell free to add to it if you like.
