Used commercial or new non-commercial

Hello.

I was looking at a new gravely zt xl 24 horse kawasaki for roughly $4000 but now found a 2008 ferris IS1500z 21 horse kawasaki with 160 hours for $4000.

Any advice?

Thanks.

Pretty easy decision if the Ferris is in tip top condition.

Apples to apples I prefer Gravely to Ferris but when it comes to home owners equipment and commercial, commercial all the way. I'd go with the Ferris in this case also if it's in good condition. Good luck.
