    do you need to bag
    is the terrain flat
    are the properties taken care of fert weed control proper mowing

    If so get a walker if not get a stander

    what's your 36? if you only have 2 mowers, i'd recommend getting something bigger than the 48, that's only 12 inches, unless you just need one that size, you won't gain much. I know i run a 36 and a 61, and that works out very, very well for me, explore your options before you buy equipment, more than 2 brands of mowers out there

    I have a 52 stander and a 42 walker and would take the stander anyday (any size), less maintenance on the stander can cut just as nice and have the option to bag, I have lawns i have to bag and i just cut it once with the stander and then throw the catcher on and suck the clippings up. As long as you have some experience cutting lawns you should be able to pull it off. Just my opinion hope it helps.

    Sounds to me that a Walker or Navigater is just what you need. These machines were made just for that purpose. If you would have said that you just needed to get it cut down and gone then the stander would probably be better.

    depends on the types of accounts, high end resi or lots who dont care and just want you in and out. If it were me I would save some money and just get the wright with a side bagger. you could probably get two wrights for the price of one walker. if were talking new. Oh I have both a walker MDGHS and wright 36

    I'm in the same boat as you. I'm running WB's right now and its time for an upgrade. I have some lawns I bag, some that are perfect, some that are not. Its a good mixture of everything for me. But something that I really want a Navigator or Walker for is spring and fall clean-ups. I think it would be so nice for that. But for everyday mowing, and price point a Stander would make more sense.
