    Who has a wright walk behind? I am partial to Wright standers and might add a 36 or 48 walk behind. I am looking at a hydro mower, Mainly how they do on hills? And any other opinions on them I have never used them but really like the quality of the standers.

    That's funny. I have a 32" walk behind with the belt drive and I hate it. It mostly stays in the shop and only gets taken out under extreme circumstances.

    Give me a T-bar control any day. It works great on those really tight gates though.

    I expect that the Hydro mower would be completely different though.

    Why would you even think about getting a walk behind if you have experience with standers?

    Walk behinds are better for smaller yards and are lighter than standers. One LCO where I live uses nothing but his 50+ walk behinds and finds them the most productive for what he does.

    Wright makes a good walk behind, plus the hydros look like they are more comfortable than the pistol grips on the gear drive models. Although I would also suggest looking into some floating deck mowers from Toro, Exmark, and Gravely if you can look find them, much easier to adjust the deck than the fixed deck Wrights.

    Yeah I would want hydro and because while the standers are great I could still use a walk behind for hills and gates
    Yeah thats another thing I was concerned about while I dont change deck hieght to often and it would be less with the walk behind I still do occasionally. How hard is it? what has to be done?

    It usually takes about 5-10 minutes depending on how well you can do it. There are two of which I know how to do it, could be more.

    1. Moving the spacers underneath the deck that position the blade to where it is.

    2. Changing the casters of the front wheels.
