Hey guys got a quick question. How does the v ride hold up on lawns that take around a hour or so. How do y'all feel after cutting that long

We run the v-ride and my guys like it, even on larger properties, it's a little more bouncy then a sit down but still it's not exhausting or anything

I tried this link and they don't have a website anymore. Found several YouTube videos and this looks like one efficient leaf collections system. I bought a 52" V-ride last month and would love to use it for leaf pick up so this would be great if I could find one.

BTW- Great thread guys...I am only 1/2 way through it and much more informed for having read it. Keep up the good work.

Just curious as to what the price you guys paid for the 61" V-rides. Tell us if it is OTD or before taxes price too - thanks!

What an ugly fix on a brand new machine. I hope they fix the 11 models. i should have not even brought it in or instead i should have found out where they were bracing the frame and paid someone else to do it so it would have looked a bit more factory. if anyone has pics of the frame fix on their mower post up id like to see how yours looks compared to mine
Can someone explain to me what is required to get the fleet pricing on Scag Mowers?

Well I'm pretty excited to be picking up my 36" V-Ride tomorrow. $5821 before taxes, I think I did allright

I'm a newb/startup, and this will be my first larger commercial mower (I also have a Honda HRC216). I'm going with the smallest model in order to fit thru residential gates. Honestly, I'm just excited to see a big piece of the puzzle fall into place! 0%/48mo financing doesn't hurt, either. Love that free money!

So lets see, I still need a trailer, insurance, clients... Lol! Gotta start somewhere
