How long have you had the 32" Hydrocut? Any complaints?

Considering one myself, only in the Snapper version 'cause I like the controls better (from what I can see, haven't demoed it yet).

I'm looking to buy a 52" Hydro. I have narrowed down my choices to the Exmark Viking or the Ferris DD. Which machine do you think provides a better cut, easier to maneuver? I wont be cutting everyday. Also do you think the 15HP Kawasaki is enough HP?

Thanks

NIce setup...but looks like you are about to outgrow your trailer!!!
I have a 18' listed in the for sale section that has side ramp also.

I Just purchased both ferris machines less than 2wks ago, me and my customers love the way these mowers cut. The Stripes it leaves is pretty good but im looking to add a homemade striping kit. If your going to purchase anything make sure it's ferris, dont get me wrong i love my exmark metro but this ferris is really something special.

hey ELITE, we have the same trailer but mine is red. I am looking to buy some center caps for the tires to help keep out the dirt and grime and protect the bearings. it will probably make it look a bit better too. I just hate the way my wheels look right now

How do the Ferris stripes compare to your Exmark with the Proslide on it?

Here is a pic of my homemade striping kit, 3ft. piece of angle iron and a 3ft. piece of rubber (tractor supply store). The angle iron mounted on the bottom part of my bagger system

Have you used it yet? It looks as if when you back up or turn around it would damage the turf when changing positions.

Yes, I used it a few times, no damage to the lawn at all. Here are a couple of lawns i used it on. I'll be posting some pics of my large account (9.4 acres) soon.
