Why This Green Industry Pro Uses Stand On Mowers Instead of Sit Down

By Brad Behr from Copper Creek Cuts

Hi guys, Brad here from Copper Creek Cuts, and today I wanted to share why I prefer to use stand on mowers versus sit down ones.

As you'll see in the video, it comes from a mix of both facts and opinion - so let's dive in.

Let's break down the reasons for stand on mowers instead of sit down.


  • I feel more productive when I'm standing

  • I feel more comfortable standing (for smaller yards, anyway)

  • I feel I get on and off quicker on a stand on than I do a sit down


  • A stand on mower is shorter front to back than a zero turn, which can help based on the size of your trailer

  • There is no blind spot with a stand on mower like there is on a zero turn

  • A stand on mower is much easier to turn around

I hope this video helps, guys, and let me know what your preference is when it comes to stand on or sit down mowers!
