Personally I like out front mowers like the f series Kubota, I run three out front mowers in the fleet. Ransome's parkway, Shibaura cm364 and Amazon's profihopper. I took a demo of a Wright's stander and didn't like it. I am not say I they are a bad machine, just wasn't suitable for my requirements.

Which would you prefer stand all day or sit all day? I found the stand on mower was great for small cutting, but standing all day on one is hard on the legs and back.

Standers are much better than walk behinds. My rider is older though, so when I'm on a bumpy lawn it kills my back (even though I'm still a teenager). Riders might be the most comfortable, but I think that the Vantage is the most comfortable because of being able to walk or stand with it.
