Soupy:
The trailer is made by Big Tex and sold here through Magnum trailer in Austin, TX. Their webiste is http://www.big-tex.com/ .
I don't think they show the one we are getting, but it looks the same as they 5x10.

kdmaint:
We actually got some good deals here this past weekend. All the vendors were at a local lawn equipment company called McCoys. We were able to get some really good deals. We already had the Husky blower and the 23cc Echo trimmer from last season. We did pick up the 26cc Echo trimmer, Echo blower, shindaiwa hedge trimmers, and the Ferris. We were tired of cutting with residential 21 inchers!!!!!

:D

We have been real busy putting scratches and dents on all our equipment!!! :(

The Ferris is a 32" Hydro walk behind. We live just north of Austin TX. The total price was somewhere around $2,500.00. We purchased it through McCoys Lawn Equipment Center and got a sweet deal. The only down side is that you can't turn that mower without your feet planted on the ground. Which means it will always be a walk behind. There are no seperate controls for each wheel.

So is the Ferris one of those single hydro drives, if so how ell does it work.

Also wich blower do you like better i am in the market for one and can't decide what i want.

Yes, it is a single drive. It has "power steering" and turns easily once you let it know what you are doing. We are happy with it for now.

As for the blowers, I like the size and power of the Husky 25cc. But, it doesn't compare to the 40cc Echo. I have really seen the limits of the Husky with all the leaf blowing here lately.

We have the same machine. It is a good mower, lays good lines. It had a leaking problem at first, but the dealer squared that away in about 5 minutes.

As for turning, you can use a sulkie and it has more then enough power to pull it. The brakes are individual so it can power turn left and right. I was skeptical at first, but after using it for a while it is easy to control.

Downside besides the left/right throttle control is that the mower speed and the blade speed are not seperate.

Nice Equipment ! I demoed that ferris and it ws hard to get use to, with those thumb controls. I was also quoted $2500.00. The dealer was really good and helpful.
Nice Equipment!

Yeah, that is a good price. After talking with my co-owner, we actually paid $2,300 and some change. $2,500 is still a good price. We are also getting use to the thumb controls. It's a grass eating machine, that's for sure!:cool:

Good luck. Be gentle with those echo trimmers I had two last season that ended up dying out on me really quick. I switched to Stihl in the middle of the season and they holding up better.
