      Hello. It's nice to see another Tn business here. I am south of clarksville about 20 min. I like the posts and the scags. I'm looking at a few at the dealer on Kraft st now.

      Wow. Thanks so much for the info. I've been out of the industry now for about (5) years or so. I've seen these standers becoming more and more popular over the years. I've seen guys just zipping through properties with these things and though I know time is very valuable in this industry, so is quality. I was just curious as to how good of a cut these guys were doing at those speeds...lol. When I ran a crew, I used to stay on my mower man because of his speed on the turf tiger and eventually, like I knew he would, he ended up damaging the mower because he was not paying attention and moving too fast.

      In the end, it really comes down to your needs and properties. If I could only pick 1 mower it would be the V-Ride because it is very versatile, lighter, and cheaper. You can fold the platform up and walk behind it on steep hills. Visibility is better on a stander than a ZTR due to height. Standers are more maneuverable too. If you need to get on and off alot to pick things up, a stander is perfect.

      We use 52s because they fit through most of our gates and can still do 2.5 acre properties. We do properties that are only 8k sq ft with a 52 also.

      Hope this helps. If you need anymore info just shoot me a msg.

      If you can swing it, a Turf Tiger is very hard to beat. It is a proven model, durable build, and holds resale value very well. The suspension seat is also comfortable. The V+ deck is legendary for cut quality and clipping dispersion. I am actually amazed at the amount of grass it can cut and spread evenly with 0 clumping. I haven't used a Cheetah but others say it is hard to see over the fuel tanks on the side when trimming close to obstacles. They also say the suspension platform is very comfortable and a 61" and will mow @ 16mph. The 52s are slower.

      We also have a V-Ride that it is a 26hp Kawi and has more cutting power than our 29hp EFI Kohler TT. It also weighs 400 lbs less. We have cut 3+ ft tall fields with both at the same time and the V-Ride plowed through it no problem. The TT had a little bit of trouble keeping rpms up. With that said, I still think the TT is the best ZTR hands down.

      Just wanted to comment on your professional image. Your logo is on point and I enjoy your website. I have family in Madison, TN and Lawrenceburg, TN, so kudos to a fellow Tennessean! The military, USAF (4 1/2 yrs) brought me to Florida and I've been here since '99. You mentioned a 50in ZTR is good to start with. I've had experience with SCAG and personally, I like SCAG as well. What particular model do you recommend? Thanks for your time.
