    I have these 2 choices. Both 52" but I can make my mind up. What do y'all think?

    I demoed the v ride and hated it. I'd go with the tiger cat if it were me, actually I'd get the cheetah myself. But if those were my 2 choices I'd get the tiger cat.

    Well I forgot to mention that I've demoed a V-Ride and I actually liked it. But I just can't decide on one lol

    Would depend on types of lawns. If you have more small lawns the Vride. If you have larger open lawns it would be nicer to sit.
    Alot of low lying trees, the TC would be better not having to bend over all the time under the trees.

    i really like my v ride, plus alot of my residential customers don't want to see a zero turn on there lawns. its just as fast, easier to get into tight places. i prefer to stand myself, its really your preference, i use all standers now and can cut just as faster or faster with someone on a zero turn (unless you have 5 acres with nothing in the way)

    Those are really small. I think either a good 21" up to maybe a 36" WB would be a far better choice for those lawns. I like to ride as much as anyone else, but I just can't see the benefit of a Z or a stander on lawns like that unless the back yards are noticabley larger.

    I don't knock anyone for wanting a new (to them) Z or stander. It's a matter of whether or not you need it, and if that's your largest account then a 48" WB would be a much better choice overall. Now if you could get a bunch like that larger one, then I'd go with one of the two you are asking about. Which one is gonna have to be based on which you feel the most comfortable on/using. Good luck whichever way you go though.:)
