It is a slightly different feel in my opinion, hard to explain. I think its the fact that the seat is right there, but truth be told I very rarely stand unless my back is hurting or something. Overall, to answer your question I think its pretty easy to stand on but that's me. I would demo it verses maybe a Deere stander (big difference). If you are looking for something to sit and be comfortable on while mowing something that will take you 4 hours then this probably isn't the mower for you (get a rider) but if you want something that can handle most small, all mid-sized yards and most large properties it would be a great fit...at least it is for us. it handles hills and flats well, its nimble, easy and quick to get on and off the trailer, mulches nicely and over all is a productive mower for us.
one other small complaint is I had to add a aftermarket stripe roller to ours as it doesn't come with one (maybe the newer ones do now?) not a huge issue, but kind of annoying.
