    Hey guys I just picked up some rather large contracts with a realty company. They have pretty much all steep slopes, banks, and swails that need to be cut. What's the safest machine to use on a job like this? A machine that you stand on, or something like a walk behind exmark?

    I would prefer a walk behind, but I haven't used a stander. It seems like you would have a lower center of gravity and more control with a walk behind.
