I bought a used 48 inch, side discharge Walker a couple of years ago. I purchased it primarily to use on smaller and/or fenced yards, and more manicured properties, of which I have very few. I love the Walker's cut, but it is rather slow on bigger areas and a bit rough riding (no suspension seat). Also, my wife hates the controls, and basically refuses to use it I notice on here that more and more guys seem to be going to standers, especially the V-ride. I've never been on one, but am wondering if smaller unit might do the jobs I need a smaller mower for a bit more efficiently? I'm especially addressing this question to those that have run Walker's as well as stand-on units. Is the stander as maneuverable in tight spaces? What is the quality of cut? Overall speed on properties? Thanks for any input.
