If you are going to get into this discussion at least be honest and straightforward.

If you are concerned with stripes, this is probably true.

When in reverse, you are not holding on to anything except the drive levers, awkward.

Informed opinions are not ignorance. 20+ years of running everything from T-Bars, Pistol grips, ECS, etc gives one a perspective on equipment. The design and performance of this machine is just not impressive. Exmark has basically the same machine and I would expect the same lackluster results from it.

The 40 is not stable on hills, as you get to the 48, 52, it might get better, don't know. Why would I want to use a rider as a WB.

Nor a WB apparently. As Ricky said, demo one and really put it through the paces before you buy.
