    Need a 32'' mower for triming, The wrights cought my eye and i like the setup. Im just wondering the pros cons of both. I Use a 44 toro z master for everything but gated backyards.

    Get the stander if you can justify the price difference. I'd love to have one.

    Have you priced a stander? I think you could buy two WB's for the price of one stander. I could be wrong but when I priced the stander I went another way. I do what I can afford.

    Had a 36" gravely wak befind with a sulky. bought a 36" Stander and never looked back. had not had the walk behind out of the garage this summer. If you can afford it, the stander is the way to go.

    Would it be that much more than a 36'' 17hp kawi hydro viking with a sulky? That is probably the wb i would look at as well, Im done with belts so the metro is out of the picture.

    You can get a 32" or 36" stander for $4200 to $4500. Which is just a little more for a fix deck hydro walk behind.

    The stander is going to be much faster that the walk behind with a sulky on tiny back yards.

    My vote is for the stander. You won't be sorry. And like Itsgottobegreen said, They are not that much more than a hydro WB.

    so that is a plus right there, they also carry exmark so i will demo both soon
    Just wondering about top speed? Im sure the 32" stander is faster than a 15hp 36" viking right?
