The 61 came out in production the last couple months. It is a lower volume unit compared to the 48 or 52. Rep in the area has sold some but the lack of decent bagging system pushes people to the rider. I thought about one but bought a turf tiger instead, money isn't much more for the riders and have good size bagging systems.

i got a price of $6700 for the 61.. I thought the turf tigers were quite a bit more than that?

The 35hp briggs w/61 deck is about $9300. Actually thought the 61 vride was in the high 7's but never asked for a otd price on one. The $6700 is a good price I would think.
