    cost- a good secondary mower for less than the price of a rider

    Not to mention the weight. I love those companies that have both riders and WB. They go out after a few days of rain and decide not to take the extra time to walk the mower. Its pretty funny seeing the mud stripes on their lawns.

    Hmmm, my 60" Lazer leaves less ruts than my 36" TTHP because of the wider tires.
