    It is difficult to know how you plan to use the units. We use the Walker to do nice finishing jobs on small commericial. The stander is used on small residential lots with 36" gates. Most people aren't wanting so see a riding mower on small properties so no Walker. The Walker cost a lot more than stander.

    EverRide makes a nice stander. The Scorpion and Scorpion FX. Now, I do not own one but I have tested piloted the Scorpion FX and it is nice. I like standers, but I prefer walk behinds...just my preference.

    If you are getting old like me you are going to like the walker better if you are less than 30 try the stander very fast. :hammerhead:

    I think if you plan to bag all of your properties then the Walker would be the best. If you are side discharging then the Wright.

    If you buy the mower new the seat is around 540 if you just want the seat to install in your walker then is going to get pricy some where around 900 bucks
