    does anyone have the 36" vantage and what is your review of it compared to a walk behind?

    To bad i bought a Turf Tracer HP 36'' about 5 months ago. When they came out with the Vantage, i told my dealer i wish they would make a smaller size ... which i why i bought the wb ... should have waited, also would have been cheaper.

    A search will bring up some of the problems people have had with this mower, I demoed one and wanted badly to like it, but it just didn't find my accounts.
    If you got a lot of flat terrain, this might be a GREAT mower.
    There is a lot to like about the Vantage, I just could not get comfortable with it on hills.

    They weigh more than a regular WB. I would be concerned with rutting.

    are you saying that the Vantage cost less than the TT?

    With the $500.00 off rebate going until the middle of the summer, yes. I can get a 36'' Vantage for approx $6,750.00.

    My TTHP costs $7,350.00 - Hydro drive. Remember I had to buy the exmark stand-on as well - $500.00 upgrade.
