Smallest dual hydro?

Ok fellas. I've been doing searches on here and all over the internet hoping to find a dual hydro walk-behind that is smaller than 36." I need one for some of my residentials that have slopes and even some smaller commercial stuff. The only thing I've found is the Stander- but I want to be able to walk it.

Does anyone make a dual hydro smaller than 36"?

Thanks

There are a few sloped areas that are kind of tight. It just seems walking it would be safer and give me more control.
Thanks for the replies. Anything Else?

You can walk the 36" Standar....don't know about the 32" but we ocassionally walk along when we are close to street on slope where we might slip the unit off onto the roadway.

Do you have the operator presence system disabled? I know you can walk them when the blades are not engaged but I think if you get off with the blades spinning it will either turn the blades off or shut the engine down.

As for Bobcat, I dunno exactly what they make anymore...LOL. The stuff on the website is not up to date as they are changing the entire walkbehind lineup. I dont think they are offering any floating deck walkbehinds for now. The gear drives are all going to be on the "classic" chassis but with dual belts and Kawasaki engines. The briggs and kohler models are going away as are the big tire gear drive models. The hydro line I have no idea about. I dont remember seeing a 32" in there, but I could be mistaken.
