    So did you see the V-Rides in action on hills? I'm interested in their performance...might try to convince the boss to switch to 60" stand on units instead of zero turns.

    Slight incline... on the yard next to one I was cutting... the thing that really impressed me was its speed backwards.. the guy was going faster backwards then I could forward... and laying nice stripes... extremely useful next tomulch beds when side discharging

    Yes, very cold this morning sitting on a Zero Turn. I do love this weather though.

    I ended up push mowing a yard because I didnt want to tear it up with the snapper. Good thing I had some extra time. I am ready for snow to fly as soon as I get my salter installed and my new plow blade installed.

    Yeah, we've been push mowing and whip whapping acres of grass because it's too saturated but still growing.
