Ferris IS 3100Z Demoed Today

I demoed a Ferris 3100Z with a 37 hp Kawasaki and 72" deck today. Feel free to ask me any questions you wish answered. I will post a number of pictures for a close look at the mower and some of the cutting results.

the spec chart says the rear wheels are 24x12x12 but is it just me or do those wheels look a little small for that machine?

That there is a vision of loveliness! It looks like it did a stellar job of cutting. We are your audience, please lend us your thoughts on the aforementioned.

Looks similar to the one I demoed in Terre Haute. They haven't changed the design in a few years have they?

What was the list price on that thing in that configuration?
I thought the tires seemed small on the demo I tried as well..Optical illusion???
