    Just thinking about buying a stander. But what advantage is a stander vs a walk behind, besides standing on it.

    I have two and love them both. It is much faster for me that is, than using a walk behind.

    Maneuverability and efficiency. From my experience, there is even a difference in stand-ons mowers in terms of maneuverability and efficiency. I would recommend a Wright, but get demos and make the best decision for yourself.

    Im thinking about getting a wright. I have a 48 inch hydro and I figure if I put a bullrider type sulky on it I will keep it but I think I will switch to all wrights after that.

    fore me the one disadvantage of using a hydro walker with a sulky is that the uneven weight distribution can create some uneven terrain from time to time ... i'm hoping to upgrade myself to a stander to hopefully alleviate this

    also ... i wood get the widest tires u can as this will help minimize rutting
