2012 Ferris 32 Hydro-cut reveiw!!! (Pictures)

Well to start, I absolutely love this machine! I really thought this machine would kick my a$$. Ya the arms were a little sore yesterday while i was using it, but im ok today. Its very easy to maneuver. Handles steep ditches no problem. And im only 140lbs. As someone said in another thread, yes you can perform z-turns! and its simple...the outside wheel turns forward, and the inside wheel turns in reverse...just a little bit. It leaves a beautiful cut IMO. Height adjustment is easy, just wish they had put more of a handle on the end. The controls are very nice and really comfortable. I thought it had a 15hp kawasaki, but it comes with a 16hp kawasaki! Plenty of cutting power. When my dad had his rental business, he used to sell for the Ferris dealer I got this from, (just found this out yesterday) so I let him try it and he loves it! He is 55yrs old and has a fake hip (hernia) and had no problem maneuvering this machine. The dealer had it full of gas for me too! I still have a few more days with this machine before i have to return it, so I will take more pictures and give a little bit more of a review. http://www.lawnsite.com/attachment.p...1&d=1336915194

You gotta return it? Is it a loaner, or are you demoing it with thoughts of purchase?

That has to be a butt kicker.
