Vantage S-Series

For professionals who want stand-on maneuverability and traction. And Exmark quality.
Not surprisingly, the difference between our stand-on mowers and the competition’s starts with the operator platform. Vantage Series mowers feature a large, rubber padded platform with weight-compensating suspension that allows the operator to easily and comfortably shift his weight on hills for maximum control and maneuverability. Our patented thigh pads also comfortably conform to the operator’s legs without interfering when the platform is folded up for storage, trailering or converting the Vantage to a walk-behind.

Patented Mechanical Control System

Comments about Exmark Vantage S-Series:

We got a Demo Vantage S-Series from the Dealer with only about 15 hours on it. Saved 1000's We used to Replace a Toro 52" Rider. Great Machines the ECS controls are Fantastic if you have walk behinds that your crews use. That way if they can run a walk behind they can run any of the ECS controls. We use it on several townhome properties, Fantastic! We use it on a 10 acre open property, Works Great! It even works on smaller yards as well, although we prefer to use smaller equipment it handles well.

The Cons:

The Only things I've seen or my guys have told me is the Handles start to hurt your hands if your going full out for a while. Also the height adjustment cuts lower than what it says. Example if we want to cut at 3" we need to have it at 3.5" on the mower.

Other than those small issues it's a GREAT MACHINE!!

Only thing I wish it had would be a easier and quicker way to change from side discharge to mulching. Time is money, and going from one yard type to another it would be nice to have the option to switch on the fly.

    Comments about Exmark Vantage S-Series:

    This was our first Stand on mower we have only used riders in the past. It is so much easier to get in and around properties that have obsticals in your way. I will definitly buy another one when the time comes. One thing that I wish was easier was changing the oil. There might be an easier way we haven't found yet but it gets messy when we change the oil and the filter is hard to get to.

    Comments about Exmark Vantage S-Series:

    I own a small lawn care service. We cut 100+ lawns per week. Made the switch from wright and haven't looked back. Couple of things the vantage lacks are:
    -Oil filter location makes for a difficult change.
    -Front end is a little light for steeper grades.
    -Poor cut quality in wet conditions.
    Other than that, great unit. 500 hours in one season with zero issues! Looking for a 60" this spring!
