    Hey was wondering if anyone has bought this and used it for commercial use. I have 2 exmarks and they work great and want to buy this machine in 52"-23 engine. Any idea on the price would be great too , thanks.

    I think its become my new favorite mower. It took a few days to get use to the controls, but its real comfortable to operate, very little operator fatigue.

    Just bought one today and it took me a few minutes to get used to the controls but if you have ever driven a ZTR, you will catch on quickly!!! I love the mower, cut several lawns today and it's awesome. I got the 52" with the Kawasaki 24hp. That son of gun can hold a hill, it really surprised me what it could do!!!! Good luck on getting one and I truly believe that it's will be a more efficient mower on commercial properties once you get used to the controls!!

    exmark is offering it in the new style kawi engines , 20 and 24, as opposed to the 19 and 23 older style on the Grandstand. I've run the 20 and unless you are trying to cut grass a foot tall at full speed, don't see much of a need for the 24. Just more operating cost with the extra fuel consumption.

    I have one, it's a good mower. If you do a title search for Vantgage, you'll find a fairly long thread that I started on it.

    Long story short, it doesn't replace a walk-behind but it's a great mower on the right type of property.
