    Hoping for some good input. For mowing I run 2 scags, 52" w/collection and 61" Turf Tiger and a Honda 21" HRX. Looking to add a new, smaller, stand-on for a better finished look on my smaller lawns. I currently service appox. 45 lawns, most under half acre. My dealer offers Toro Grandstands and Scag V-Ride 2. I am a Scag guy but always open to options. I need to choose between the Toro 36" or 40" with Turbo Force deck and the Scag Vride2, 36" w/ advantage deck or 48" with Velocity Plus deck. A commercial walk behind or different dealer are not options. I like the smaller footprint of the 36" and 40" but I like the extra coverage/tracking width of the 48". Any input would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    this is just my opinion, but if you're willing to consider the 48" then the vride is a no brainer to me. the velocity deck is head and shoulders above the turboforce and advantage deck.

    again, this is just my opinion

    Thanks for the input! The VP deck is why I run Scags, a great cut every time.

    I have a 52 and a 61 VRide, both awesome. The reason I never pulled the trigger on the 36 VRide is because there is no VP deck.

    Thank you! If scag made the 36 with the VP deck I would not have this post for sure.
