I just purchased a Ferris 36" WB with the belt drive. I haven't used it yet. Why is it the worst?

i'm sure ferris has made improvements since i last used one, it was the safety's on the handles it would kill my hands within a half hour of use.

I will agree with that! Have had great luck with Wright Stander and any lesco walk-behind. It's all in the motor. Kawasaki has always treated me right!!;)

Worst would surely be a Gravely 1844 ZTR homeowner quality. I never owned one before(ZTR) so the dealer recommened it so we bought................BIG MISTAKE. We did run it for 2 years but dumped it right away in the spring after the second season. WAY too many probs. From electrical, hydros, belts, overall steel work(JUNK). I could go on and on , but I did not use it the way it was intended for. :hammerhead:

Best All of our Deere mowers have performed flawlessly. We are very happy with them and there resale values. And they are very comfortable to!:usflag:
