I can fit it in almost all of my smaller yards, it really surprises me where I can take it and it can cut perfectly at full speed. I cut down my time on larger lawns by half, and I can literally do some of my smaller ones in less than 10 minutes while still making them look perfect. V-ride was the best decision I have made thus far. I have heard great things about the wrights, but I have heard the quicktraks are actually better but the down fall on both is they don't have a deck on them compared to the velocity plus (the quiktracks don't even use the 7iron). And the v-ride fits very nicely on my 6x12 leaving alot of extra room - I was worried I would have to upgrade my trailer when shopping around, not even close with the 52"

Just something for you to think about in your decision

The only thing I can see wrong with your pictures is in the second one whenever you curved to miss the post - trying going in the opposite path twice to the right of the post (Two passes) to make that curve line completely disappear - it takes nothing to do it but it will look a-lot nicer once done.

I love my trailer. Its build well and its a perfect weight for a trailer. Where i got it the guy order it with a 6'6' inside height and its perfect. Its a great trailer. I was going to get a 14 but im so happy i got the 16 because i the extra two feet really helps.

I love my scags need to drive one to see if i like it and i drove wright and i m not to crazy about them. I love me a scag. The only dealers around here are scag and wright so i have to pick between them. I can only fit one more mower then i will be out of room. So its going to come down to what i like more for the stand on mower.

I would personally go with the scag - I can't see the wright deck cutting like the velocity plus. If I am wrong I will gladly put my own foot in my mouth. From my understanding wrights are more expensive too (don't have a dealer in my area though). Stick with scag and keep an orange fleet!

Sorry - I wasn't downing your work at all, everything looks great, just giving you a pointer to possibly make it better. Don't take it the wrong way.

I love scag but i will need to see wright is cheaper in the winter and i love the orange. But its going to come down what i like more.
