    Hey guys got a quick question. How does the v ride hold up on lawns that take around a hour or so. How do y'all feel after cutting that long

    We run the v-ride and my guys like it, even on larger properties, it's a little more bouncy then a sit down but still it's not exhausting or anything

    I tried this link and they don't have a website anymore. Found several YouTube videos and this looks like one efficient leaf collections system. I bought a 52" V-ride last month and would love to use it for leaf pick up so this would be great if I could find one.

    BTW- Great thread guys...I am only 1/2 way through it and much more informed for having read it. Keep up the good work.:clapping:

    Just curious as to what the price you guys paid for the 61" V-rides. Tell us if it is OTD or before taxes price too - thanks!

    Well I'm pretty excited to be picking up my 36" V-Ride tomorrow. $5821 before taxes, I think I did allright :)

    I'm a newb/startup, and this will be my first larger commercial mower (I also have a Honda HRC216). I'm going with the smallest model in order to fit thru residential gates. Honestly, I'm just excited to see a big piece of the puzzle fall into place! 0%/48mo financing doesn't hurt, either. Love that free money!

    So lets see, I still need a trailer, insurance, clients... Lol! Gotta start somewhere :)

    paul you will love the mower. i bought a 36" lasts year as my main mower and it was very nimble and great for the back yards. even picked up a few big accounts and it handled those great. bought the 52 this year. lets just say im looking forward to mowing again. lol
