I am going to go look at a Vride in the morning, the dealer is having to store it till next spring and is acting like he wants to make a deal. It is a 2012 light use demo that hasn't left the store parking lot. I would like to hear from someone that has experience with one, I like the way that it drove around there and handles great. I've used a friends ZTR that has the same deck and was impressed with it. All said and done this will be cheaper than the Exmark 52" TT and will be able to mow a wider range of conditions.
