Walk behind vs stander mower

I was wondering what is better for a new mower
Walk behind or stander
Cut quality?
Speed?
Price?
It would most likely be a 48in deck

I would get a walk behind, it depends on the brand bob cat has great cut quality cut. For the most part they are less expensive and with a silky go a decant speed. Either one would be a good choice though. I have a bob cat walk behind and all I can say is get it hydro it helps in the long run.

I prefer

Since you are looking for a 48" a stander has decent size tires with a 48"

With a stander you will be able to get more done in less time without wearing your self out as much. See if you can demo a scag vride at your local dealer the go from there with your decision

I would get a stander, much less fatiguing than a walk behind.
