    Surfer or Walk behind?? I personally like the surfer more.
    but, if you are going to be using it on hills you will frlip over so it depends on the terrain.;) Hope this helps.:)

    If the mower is to be used mostly for gated yds look for a 36" and add a flex-deck, easy to get in and mowing will be much faster............Marks Mowing Service

    I assume you are talking about while going up hills? That does sorta make sense. All your body weight on the back of the machine.
