what is the fuel economy on that 450 and is it worth the extra coin what do you get in a 450 vs. a 350

It gets between 10 - 12 mpg. the upgrades are the 19.5 wheels and tires and stronger frame and suspension. i like it alot better than the 350's. it also turns on a dime.

Were any of those stripes from the Toro? Do you have striping kits?

Thats real nice striping. Also nice truck. I assume by how its sitting it 4x4? Post some pics of the equipment/mowers. Also why did you get the F-450? I called a dealer near me to get a quote on one and he won't sell them because they are only $2,000 less then the F-550 and like $1000 more then an F-350.

The truck is a 4 x 4, when i went to buy a new truck i knew that i didnt want the 350 and i was looking at the 550's also but there was an 8 week waiting period so i took what was on the lot at the time.

Those stripes were done with the ferris 52" w/b with no striping kit. Ferris w/b are known for there stripes and no striping kits are needed.

I'll take some more pics this weekend of the equipment and the truck.

Did you walk all that or did you use some kind of velke on the Ferris

we walk every thing. i dont even own any velkes. I think the tires on the velkes mess up the stripes.

I have a toro ztr but i choose not to use it. The ferris walk behinds give a better quality stripe and cut.
