We use the top speed on level, open lots and in transport. It does factor in somewhat for me but 9-10 mph is not too bad regardless. I did record a notable productivity increase on large lots and in neighborhoods when we added a hustler super z to the fleet

We got to demo the 61" vride last year as our rep didn't have a 52" to demo but it was a really nice machine. If I could have used it on more of my properties I would've bought it instead of the 52"

Why would you ever think about spending that kind of money on a machine you can not try out? Would you buy a new truck if they did not let you at least drive it around the block?
Scag has a demo program for dealers and just about all Scag distributors keep demo units on hand to help out dealers. Better go find another brand. No demo=no sale, in my way of thinking.

Hey Casey, next time you need something Scag in Virginia, try K & M Equipment in Culpeper, Va. They have great prices and are willing to go the extra mile for you. They have been great to work with - no complaints.

I made the mistake of demoing the cheetah along with the v ride . The cheetah came home with me. Now its time to sell the lazer. The v ride was nice but the cheetah was incredible.
