    ok so what do you guys think for a good first season ... kind of an "all around" mower? I have been looking at the walk behinds, the stander types, and a few differnt ZTR's ... im really torn between the Toro walk behind and the wright stander ... what do some of you guys think???

    Like most would say I think, consider the type of property you are going for, ie; acres, hills, fences and such. If there are fences make sure your mower will fit in the gate.
    I have a 48" lazer z but all of my yards are 1 acre and up and only 2 have any sort of fence, double gates. Ifmoney is a factor I believe I would look closely at a walkbehind with a sulky. my .02

    A 36" walkbehind with a stand on is about as versitile as a mower gets.
