Stander differences

Im looking to pick up a stander next year and i cant seem to find the speeds on there site but i have noticed i see LCO's with the big standers going at lightning speeds and the smaller 32-48's most the time the same or slower speed than a walk behind


Is it just by choice or are the small ones alot slower? i have tight routes where speed is key and i will be driving from house to house maybe a block or 2 away at some points but would love a 32" for backyards if the speed isnt a huge diff.

I have a 36" Stander with a 17 HP Kaw and it could beat most walk behinds in a race any day...I think they make it in a 19 HP as well...Standers are the way to go if you are looking for a walk behind...

i'm looking to buy standers too...i picked up a brochure at the dealer and says anywhere from 7.2 to 11 mph, depending on which you go with...32" is the lowest at 7.2...

I'm picking up a wright stander 32" cut tomarrow with a kawasaki 15 hp. using it mainly for gated yards and for tighter spots.7.4 mph forward and 4.5 in reverse if that helps you,but you really need to use caution on turf at turning points!
