This ones easy a scag cheetah. The problem with a mower that has suspension is they scalp. The cheetah puts you and your feet in a suspended cradle.

Guess we are in the same club. I've had two back surgeries and will save my last one until after I get out of this business. The stander I had was ok but the Dixie Chopper w/ springer forks really makes a big difference.

We have a Ferris 1500, demoed a 3100 end of last season for a week and never scalped.

I demoed all last year IMO the Ferris was the best ride. You can move faster over rough ground. Two of my guys ran the machines, and we are sold on the Ferris. All of them are great machines, just seemed the Ferris shined for us. I got to tell you when I bought this 1500 used I thought it was a gimmick. But it does take hard shock out and soften it up.
