    1- cheaper to purchase
    2- they will mow on hill sides better
    3- with a velke or ride along attatchment you have 2 mowers for the price of one, a rider and a walk behind

    GCF covered the advantages pretty well.
    The things I see against a walk behind are speed, and the fatique on the operator. If you are just starting out the walk behind is a smart path to choose before you jump in head first.
