I would go for the Ferris over that. 1300 hours is quite a few on a non-commercial brand like a john deere. And like i said get a 36 so you can get into back yards. A 54 would be good as a second mower, but not a first, because you dont want to turn down a single call because they have a gate that you cant get past.
