View Full Version : Ferris 1000 very sensitive

I was mowing for a buddy of mine while he is on vacation. He has a Ferris 1000 zero turn (no suspension). It has 168 hours on it. It's a decent mower but the handles are super sensitive, there is little to no resistance when moving them forward and backward which makes going in a straight line much more difficult than I'm used to. I spoke to him about it (wondering if it was just me) and he said it gets annoying espscially since four of his lawns are real bumpy. Is there an adjustment of any kind to make the handles less touchy?

Mine used to do the same exact thing...could never understand why either. No adjustment that I remember.

some of the units had different valves for the pumps. I've changed a few and it helps alot. Still not as smooth as newer one's but it helped. There was a bulletin on it.
