Im getting ready to buy a new ferris WB,23hp with 61" deck, turf tracers are way too costly now at $8500!!!! The ferris hydro controls are feather light compared to the exmarks stiff controls, exmark has the goofy ECS handles and the ferris controls(pistol grips) have been unchanged for over 20 years! I think the ferris is the better mower. One final thing the ferris has little cooling fans on the hydro pumps, the exmarks have nothing to keep theirs cool, and they do get very hot! Exmark uses high pressure hydro system, ferris uses low pressure system to keep maintenance costs down. Go with the ferris!!!
