Pros: The cut is 2nd to none and I've operated quite a few brands. It is built rock solid. The Briggs is more than enough power.

Cons: At times the ride is like riding in a Conestoga wagon. I've lost a couple of fillings and ruptured a kidney.

My old Exmark rode better than my s200xt does. But this thing cuts 71761581827x better than my Exmark ever did.

I have the 61"/32 vanguard. 154hrs on it so farand aside from the oil changes...OEM blades have been my greatest expense.

But I love the way it cuts and operates.

I pulled the trigger on the 61"/36 Vanguard and I'm happy so far. We cut a couple of places with tall bahia and it rolled right through it with no standers. One property was pretty rough ground, so I'm still getting used to how it handles the bumps - I may play around with the tire pressures.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.
