SCAG release the V-Ride 2 – Arriving at Saltex

The new V-Ride 2 – announced on 24th September – has new features that exhibit their policy of continuous improvement and response to operator feedback, which combine to make SCAG such a successful machinery supplier.

The V-Ride is a stand-on machine; the compact machine size, ease of manouevering and clear view for the operator have lead to the V-Ride becoming increasingly popular for intricate mowing areas.

The Ride-on SCAG machines, because they are purpose-built for grasscutting, place the operator directly above the cutting deck, and one of the main features on the new V-Ride 2 is that the revised configuration of the stand-on deck follows the same concept, placing the operator nearer the centre of the machine.

Features on the machine are:
Wider stand-on platform
Increased operator comfort with a wider and deeper cushion to lean against.
Improved deck lift and adjustment facility
Wider control handles
New wider dashboard with Tiger-Eye electronic monitoring
Operator pad is removable for easy access to hydraulics
Increased diameter drive wheels
Four stowage brackets for easier trailer fixing
Replaceable front caster bracket assembly
8 gallon fuel tank

Production has commenced – we will have the first machine in the UK on our stand – K090 – at Saltex, 1st / 2nd November at the NEC. For more information contact us as below.
