    Personally I would go for the 48" v-ride. They have made some changes to them this year and I like what they have done. I currently run all scags, but I think the exmark has a nicer cut most of the time. The v ride will def be the fastest and I think is a great machine for residential work because of the agility and speed of it.

    The standers are easier on knees and back versus walkbehind and are in my opinion

    Went to get the v ride today - stupid dealer wanted 200 dollars more money - I said, how could the price change in two days - we figured it wrong the first time. I'm Not doing business with them.
    There is another dealer that quoted same price I got two days ago over the phone - its a longer drive, but there is another closer place that I can count on for service.

    Buying a new mower is a brutal experience where I live. Hyenas, all of them (dealers).
