The V-Ride™ is an ultra compact, agile, comfortable and stable stand-on mowing machine. It combines the speed and comfort of a rider with the space-saving convenience of a walk-behind mower.

Despite its compact size, the V-Ride boasts many full-sized features like hydraulic oil coolers, dual hydraulic pump dual wheel motor drive system, coil-suspension platform, and a heavy-duty steel main frame. Pair a powerful Kawasaki FX, Kawasaki FS or Kohler EFI commercial-grade engine with a 36" Advantage™ or a 48, 52 or 61 inch Velocity Plus™ deck and you have an ideal combination of agility, power and performance.

With a low center-of-gravity and extra-large drive tires, stability is never compromised. The operator rides on a coil suspension platform which delivers bump soaking, back and knee saving travel. The operator comfort pad is adjustable to fit different operator sizes and riding styles.

This is truly the ultimate stand-on mower with excellent handling, stability and quality. No cut corners, no compromise, nothing but top quality construction and unmatched performance. Don't take our word for it. Contact your local Scag dealer for a demonstration today and experience the Scag difference for yourself. Check out our social media page and our testimonials page to see what real Scag customers are saying about their Scag mowers.

Standard Features

 Available in several model configurations to fit a wide range of professional lawn maintenance needs. Compact size allows more units to fit on a single trailer.  
 Up to 11 mph forward speeds (on 61 inch models) and up to 6 mph reverse speeds keep productivity at a maximum. Up to 8.5 mph forward on 48 and 52 inch models. Up to 7.7 mph forward on 36 inch model.  
 36 inch Advantage or 48, 52 or 61 inch Velocity Plus™ Cutter Deck deliver an immaculate quality-of-cut.  
 Spacious operator platform with coil suspension delivers a smooth the ride and reduces operator fatigue. Springs are with 3.5 inches long and provide 1.25 inches of suspension travel.  
 Operator platform is made from heavy gauge steel with extruded star pattern for no-slip footing. The platform can be flipped forward to allow for more trailer space and also allows the mower to be driven (with or without the blades on) while walking behind the mower. Platform is wide and unobstructed.  
 Kawasaki FX series engines are commercial-grade and feature canister air filters, and twin barrel carburetors. Kawasaki FS engines feature dual element air filters and single barrel carburetors.  
 The Kohler EFI (electronic fuel injection) engine is incredibly powerful and an efficient powerhouse. The engines will start easier and is more fuel efficient than carbureted models, reducing overall operating cost.  
 Auxiliary hydraulic oil cooler (on the 48, 52 and 61 inch V-Ride) keeps oil temperatures well within a safe operating level and adds to hydraulic system component life.  
 Scag tough main frame construction delivers solid strength and ensures years of trouble-free service. The main frame was designed for strength and longevity.  
 Ogura GT 3.5 (61 inch V-Ride) or GT 2.5 (36, 48, 52 inch V-Ride) PTO clutch brake engages and stops the cutter blades smoothly and safely. Adjustable air-gap ensures long component life.  
 Convenient, full-featured instrument panel has ignition key, PTO switch, Drive and Neutral lever, throttle, choke, and digital hour meter. The fuel gauge is located on top of the fuel tank, right next to the instrument panel for easy viewing.  
 Drive and Neutral lever - When in Neutral, the steering control levers are locked, preventing accidental movement by bumping the controls. In the Drive position, the steering controls have full, complete range for mower operation.  
 Operator Comfort Cushion can be mounted in different positions, fitting different operator sizes and riding preferences.  
 Large diameter, padded steering control levers are very comfortable and easy on your hands. The hand force required to control the V-Ride is minimal and the lever action is extremely smooth.  
 Heavy-duty blade drive spindles provide reliable performance season after season. The Scag spindle is more than tough enough to handle the high horsepower and torque requirements of this mower.  
 Dual 12cc (61 inch V-Ride) or 10cc (36, 48 and 52 inch V-Ride) hydraulic pumps and dual 12 ci cast iron, high-torque wheel motors provide smooth, positive and reliable power to the drive wheels. Pressure relief valves in the pumps protect the system from internal pressure spikes and add to pump life.  
 8 gallon (52 and 61 inch V-Ride) or 5.5 gallon (36 and 48 inch V-Ride) fuel tank keeps you in the field cutting grass. Fuel tank features a fuel level gauge and an extra large, angled filler neck for easy filling.  
 Interlocked parking brake prevents the mower from being driven with the brake on, stopping premature brake wear.  
 Auxiliary canister air filter system is standard equipment on all V-Ride mowers with Kawasaki FX engines. This provides extended service intervals and longer engine life.  
 Easily adjust cutting heights with the convenient, easy to lift hand lever. Wide range of adjustment from 1-1/2 to 4-1/2 inches in 1/4 inch increments. Auto-lock in transport position with a simple thumb release.  
 Deck leveling adjustment brackets at all four corners of the deck allows for easy in-the-field deck leveling and pitch adjustment.  
 Tri-Plate cutter deck top is incredibly strong. 0.485 inch deck top thickness from three separate layers of steel (7, 10, and 11 gauge)  
 "Split-Steel" pulleys are used on load carrying areas like the cutter deck spindles and pump drive systems. Split steel pulleys are stronger than cast iron or stamped pulley designs. Our pulleys are strong for long life and lightweight for reduced inertia and decreased wear on the cutter deck drive system.  
 Tapered locking hubs are used on spindle shafts and pump input shafts for easy pulley removal and service for years to come.  
 No plastic pulleys - Some [other brands] actually use plastic pulleys on their mowers. Not Scag. All Scag pulleys are made from metal. Plastic is for toys.  
 High-quality bearings and bearing debris guards on idler pulleys ensure long, reliable service.  
 Self-adjusting belt systems effortlessly keep belts in constant adjustment for maximum life and minimum maintenance.  
 Tapered roller bearings are utilized in the front caster wheel axles and caster yoke pivots for durability and reduced maintenance.  
 Extra-large 20x10.5-8 inch drive tires ensure better traction, less turf tearing and easy curb climbing (36 inch models have 18x7-8 drive tires). Drive tires are 4-ply for added durability.  
 13x6.5-6 (61 inch V-Ride) or 11x4-5 Flat-Free front caster tires (36, 48, 52 inch V-Ride) and eliminate the downtime associated with flat tires caused by debris, thorns, etc.  
 Four tie-down points are built-in on the front and rear of the mower (2 front, 2 rear) for fast and convenient loading and unloading on trailers.  
 Front weight system (under the front belt cover) can be customized with fewer or additional weights. 36 inch V-Ride comes standard with two 35 pound weights. 48, 52 and 61 inch V-Ride come standard with one 35 pound weight. Up to three weights total can be installed at one time.  
 Custom-Cut Baffle allows you to customize the cutter deck to your individual cutting conditions.  
 Simple, easy to service, neutral and tracking linkages. It's the same design that we use on other Scag riding mowers. No cable systems or complicated bracketing. Straight forward designs with proven reliability.  
 User-friendly mower design allows access to the engine and filters, for easy maintenance. Engine oil drain hose included.  
 Solid hillside stability due to a low center-of-gravity, large tires and a wide stance.  
 Marbain cutter blades stay sharp longer for reduced maintenance.  
 High quality electrical components such as switches, wiring and harness looms are used throughout the Scag mower line for dependable service.  
 Laser cut, vented rear panel allows for increased air flow and cooling for the hydraulic pump drive system. Blow out debris with compressed air or a blower without having to remove the panel.  
 Sealed fuse holder keeps the elements out to help prevent corrosion and electrical issues.  
 Fuel tank shut-off and fuel gauge are located on top of the tank, near the instrument panel for easy access and viewing.
