Been researching standers all winter and decided on the vantage, 52 in deck 24 Kwai. Test drove v ride and vantage. Liked the vantage because it was more comfortable and smoother. Used it for 2.5 hours today really impressed so far handles ditches better than I thought, was skeptical that the machine would scalp since the deck has no gauge wheels but it did not. I will give a better review after I have used it for a couple of weeks. Seems like a pretty awesome machine.
