    I have had zero experience with wright but figured I will demo one soon just for the hell of it. What didnt you like about them?

    I don’t feel like reading 6 pages, has anyone mentioned a walk behind with a pro slide? your standing, no pivot point so you move with the mower, no wheels to feel the bumps, and for my height I like where the controls fall (just less than 6’)

    Yeah, I used to kick basketball nets and be bulletproof, too!
    Mowing gets to be a real chore when your back is screaming at you for 2 days afterwards.

    Your situation sounds extremely similar to mine. I am 6’ 0” and can dunk a basketball (barely), but the mowing and sports seems to be catching up with me. Jumping doesnt hurt too much as long as i dont do it for a long period of time but doing things while sitting starts to hurt quick. It just seems like all my problems are coming together in a very short period of time. If you dont mind me asking, how old before you started to have your back problems?
