V-ride vs. Wright ZK
I have a 61" Wright ZK that I bought in May 2010. It has 1450 hours on it and I was planning on replacing it this spring. The problem is that my dealer has let the Wright line go as of December. The closest dealer to me is about 45 miles and there is no quick way to get there. So I need to find a stand up that will come close to comparing with the ZK. MY dealer carries Scag and we have three Scag ZTR's in our fleet. My question is the 61" v-ride comparable to the 61" ZK. The things that I am worried about with the Scag : has a new rated hp of 25.5 (old 27 hp) where the Zk is 27.5( old 31 hp), Scag has 12cc hydro pumps and well motors where the Wright has 15cc pumps and wheel motors, the fact that it is 75" long compared to the Wright at 69" and the narrow tires 20x 10 5/8 compared to 24x 12. The pro's of the Scag are $2500.00 less and will have a superior cut with the velocity deck.
My question is, will the V-Ride have a similar performance to the ZK? Anyone have experience with both units? Thanks for the help!
