V-Ride II 61″
The largest sized mowing deck offered in the V-Ride II product lineup, designed for demanding commercial applications, you’re going to fall in love with everything that the V-Ride II 61 inch mower has to offer.
The wide operator platform you’ll find on all V-Ride II models is a little bit wider on this unit, thanks to the oversized mowing deck. This improves stability, gives you a little more confidence, and lets you shift your weight around without negatively impacting the quality or consistency of your mowing results.
The Kawasaki FX or Kawasaki FS motors are on full display here, combined with Kohler electronic fuel injection capabilities that make your new V-Ride II 61 inch mower easy to start, easy to run, and incredibly fuel efficient.
You’ll also enjoy the top-tier instrument panel included on this V-Ride II mower, giving you easy access to all of the controls you need – including the PTO, throttle, choke, and ignition – without having to move your arms away from the controls.
It’s tough to imagine there being any stand up zero turn mower on the market better than the options available in the V-Ride II lineup.
