I got the 48" V Ride today. The dealer I got it from is 20 miles from me and they are great. A real change from the local (closer) dealers I was talking to. It was an enjoyable experience and I think I got a pretty good deal. I gassed it up an mowed my yard 3 times with it. Tore some turf trying to turn to fast. It was a lot of fun to operate. It will take a while to get used to it and get up to speed. Thanks to all you guys for your input and information. This is one of the best sites on the net. You pro's are generous with you information and experience and I want to say thank you very much for all the help.
