    I'm going to be buying my first big mower (almost certainly a zero turn) soon, but I'm unfamiliar with the sales cycle on them.

    Looking at a few different stand on models, I'm 6'4", what is going to be most comfortable or is height not much of an issue? Looking at a 2015 Exmark Vantage, 2017 Scag V-ride, or a Bad Boy stand on. Any ones to stay away from for tall people?

    I'm currently looking at 2019 scag and bad boy ztr's. I have mowed with the bad boy rogue 61" 999cc with the Kawasaki fx1000v and loved it.
