Vantage EFI 60"??

Anyone used a Vantage with a 60"? I wonder how they do and how they'll compare to the 61" Vride. I'd love to sell my viking next year and get a Vantage or Vride.

I have just purchased the 60" Vantage. Demoed it for about 25 hours. Used just under 1 gallon of fuel per hour. Have never ran a VRide so cannot compare it to that. There are not many in the field yet as they are ramping up production.

Used a 52" Vantage EFI where I work, its a great mower from what I've seen so far, Exmark always makes top quality mowers.

I'd like to get one, idk how much more productive a 48" would be over my 48" Viking, I definitely want to get a stander though, turf tracers are stupid expensive now!

Can't speak for your results but when I demoed a 52" Vantage I thought it was almost as productive as a 60" turf tracer.
