Choosing Between a Walk-Behind and a Stand-On Mower

So, you've decided to buy a mower that isn't a riding mower and now you're trying to figure out whether you should buy a walk-behind or a stand-on mower. Both are useful tools to have at your disposal. The technology in non-riding mowers has grown leaps and bounds over the past few years. You might be able to narrow down your decision by weighing a few of the differences between these two popular varieties of mowers. Let's talk a little bit about each and why certain customers prefer one over the other.

Walk-Behind Mowers

Walk-behinds are still a popular variety of mower because of the control and navigation that they afford a user. While both stand-on mowers and walk-behinds are popular choices for smaller yards, the walk-behind has a proven track record when it comes to steeper slopes encountered by landscapers. The Velke Gear Drive offers a high-quality cut and compact design which is perfect for those on a budget. The Velke Hydro is a common choice for professionals and offers the biggest drive tires of any fixed-deck walk-behind mowers in the industry.

Stand-On Mowers

While the stand-on mowers were once just king with the riding mower crowd, they've been in high demand with former walking mower users as well. Stand-on mowers are perfect for landscapers who mow a lot of smaller yards. They take corners well and save you from having to walk during a majority of your mowing duties. Walk-behinds have gotten smaller over the past few years, leaving users with a much smaller cut-width. It's for this very reason that stand-on mowers are also booming. Wright offers our Stander® series of mowers that have completely changed the way lawn care professionals have thought about stand-on mowers. It has a versatility and durability that is unparalleled in the world of stand-on varieties.

Walk-behind and standing mowers both offer their own benefits to lawn care professionals. Stand-on mowers have evolved to handle both smaller and larger yards, while walk-behinds provide a user with a great level of control, especially when it comes to the steepest of hills. Whatever mower variety you decide to purchase, you'll have plenty of options to choose from.
