So did you see the V-Rides in action on hills? I'm interested in their performance...might try to convince the boss to switch to 60" stand on units instead of zero turns.

I ended up push mowing a yard because I didnt want to tear it up with the snapper. Good thing I had some extra time. I am ready for snow to fly as soon as I get my salter installed and my new plow blade installed.

Yeah, we've been push mowing and whip whapping acres of grass because it's too saturated but still growing.
