Yes. we prefer the walk behinds on most all lawns..the lazers are great on big flat open lawns and thats about it. most our crews pick the walk behinds over the lazers. we also find some of our crew leaders get a pit lazy sitting down all day. by far best cut from a mower that we have had is from an Exmark turf tracer hands down. The Grandstands do a nice job as well but the strips and cut are not that of a tracers. We can also get more mowers onto our trailers using the walk behinds. Hope this helps you out!
