Standing VS Sitting - The Benefits of Standing on the Job


While on the hunt for a new lawn mower, the choice between a standing mower and a sitting mower is often a factor. Some might think sitting is a more comfortable and beneficial choice, however, standing lawn mowers are often the better option.

Lawn mowers with standing capabilities have several benefits that sitting down mowers do not. Consider these factors when you're out on the market and you will see the great benefits of purchasing a standing mower compared to a sitting mower.

Simply put, standing mowers are better for your back. As you mow, your feet and legs receive the shock absorption instead of your lower back. It might seem strange, but it takes a toll on your body if you are using a sitting mower. The constant jerking about can cause serious back pain. Avoid that discomfort and fatigue by standing while you mow the grass.

Standing mowers are very quick and nimble through changing terrain. By instantly shifting your weight in the standing position, the mower can quickly handle the varying landscape safely and efficiently. The Stander® design places your center of gravity at your feet (not your seat), which is great for maneuverability while on the job. A standing mower makes getting on and off the mower a lot faster, which in turn allows for a much quicker job. In addition to a stander's agile feature, the lawn mower's compact design makes it easier to fit more mowers on trailers as you travel from one job to the next.

Lastly, the most important feature of a standing mower is its safety. The Stander® is built without seat belts or arm rests so you can easily exit from the standing mower if you need to pick up debris or need a quick getaway in the case of an emergency. If you are using a sitting mower, it makes it much more difficult to exit the mower quickly if something dangerous were to occur.
