    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.

    yea, I MUCH prefer to sit. standing was hard on the knees. as soon as I sat down I felt more relaxed.

    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.
