Thanks for the info. After several weeks of asking and reading reviews, and other research, I may just stick with Ferris.

Vride is definitely sweeeeeet! havn't operated one yet but we used to have the 36 advantage with the belts and that thing was bulletproof times 10.... dropped off walls, all banged up... beautiful cut and 1st yank start every single time... And who ever said that belts don't do good in the rain? This thing was amazing! Just put yer finger on the belt and you are going and the wet grass comes right off!

Ha, I returned a 36 v ride because they couldn't cut hills, even small ones. Cost me $1,000 to return it. If I didn't have hills in my backyards, I would have kept it, because besides the hills, the machine was solid. I was actually considering a wright stander x 61" if the larger standers can mow hills and or I can step off and walk it on hills.

If you do get a new Ferris WB with comfort controls and ICD deck please write us a review. They do look like one heck of a machine!!

60" Turf Tracer is my favorite mower of all time and cuts 85% of my grass. Works great for me. The reason I use walkbehinds over standers and ZTRs is because my commercial accounts are huge, but a lot of curb hopping and island hopping. Also, my residential are not suited to ZTRs and definately not a stander.

The ECS being hard is a joke of an argument against a TT. Its an easy control system. A 13 year old boy weighing 100 pounds could handle one easy. Jumping curbs is not a problem though you probably have to be a full grown man just because a 60" deck is heavy regardless.
