That has to be a butt kicker.
Didn't stripe too well at my dads apt building...he has really bad grass and cuts it too short! I tell him that too! Lol It would've been fine with a 13hp imo. But I'll take the 16hp

Can you measure that overall mower's length, PLEASE?
Would also like to know the true width with and without the chute...??

The Ferris website has the 32 Hydrocut length incorrectly measured at 82" I'm told.

I did the best i could at measuring length & width
Manual says 74 inches long overall
I measured 75-76
Manual says 41 inches wide overall
i measured 45.5-46 (chute up was 32-32.25)
weighs 330lbs
Manual says height is 41 inches

I saw 82 inches on the website too...hope this helps

How do you like the comfort controls? thumbs get tired? This is one with only a single hydro right? turns are okay? The simplicity version has a 17.5 briggs but a different 12g deck.

Thank you for taking the time to do this...very much appreciated!
I gotta say that mower looks REALLY long in your pics, and the official pics online...especially from the end of the chassis to the ends of the handlebars...but it sure sounds like it's loaded with some nice features.

Controls are very comfortable imo. Single hydro yes. Turns with ease.

Well, I sold my stander and decided to go back and pick up the Ferris! I cleaned it up from when I demoed it, then i put on a coat of wax....which my buddies laughed at. Anyways, cant wait to start cutting again on tuesday. I ordered gator mulching blades, ($25 each) and got the dealer to get me a price on the "Trimmer Trap". Turns out they can only get them from the states. Might be cheaper to just make one....I guess we'll find out next week.
