why dont you like standers? I owned 2 riders before buying a stander and its my favorite mower now. It has the best visibility, is better on hills, can turn more aggressive with less damage and beats the back pain of sitting for hours.

If your big on bagging thats a drawback but I havent found many.

Walker is great performance wise; however, it is not very accessible for maintenance.

When a Walker has a problem, all hell breaks loose.

As much as I LOVE the brand, I honestly can't/wont recommend it.

bagging is the main driver in what mower i buy and for me the bagging part comes mostly in play for spring clean ups, heavy growth months in the spring and fall clean ups.
outside of that we let everything fly and during the late spring and summer months we just take the baggers off and those are the easy months for us.

without the baggers i would triple my work load in time and labor during the spring and fall.
the walker solves the bagging issue but it is a pain in the neck during the months i do not need to bag as well as that blower is always turning whether you are bagging or letting it fly and that is such a waste of wear and tear.

i will agree with you on that the standers are great on hills and being a fellow member of the bad back club it is sometimes better to be on your feet but my riders with the deluxe seat with suspension solve 95% of that problem.
