    I have to make a decision within the next two days and I keep going back and forth! I can't spend more than 6K and that's pushing it. I was looking at either the V Ride or the Freedom Z. I was originally considering others, but these are the two I have narrowed it down to. I have a Scag dealer in my area and they are offering the 0% financing. I have to get a 36", because the majority of homes in our area have fences with narrow gates. The majority of lots are half an acre or less. I do have some customers that don't want the grass clippings left on the lawn, so would need a bagger and I'll be doing fall leaf cleanup this fall. Which is going to be the best choice? Any suggestions?

    if getting a 36" definately get the v-ride. the freedom z isn't really a commercial mower. it's more for homeowners. the v-ride is a full commercial mower.

    If $ is a issue get a walk behind 36" mower. Cheaper option and you can get a COMMERCIAL mower vs the Freedom.

    v-ride all the way, i just bought one and love it, I'm about to buy a bag for it, the freedom z is meant for homeowners and wouldn't hold up to the day to day use.
