BTW did you get your speeds from a radar gun or just guessing?

I tried to get one of mine to go 10mph and could not safely. Ran it next to a ZTR I know that goes 10.5mph and the ZTR pulled away quickly.

Exmark claims their WB's go 6.2mph and they ran right next to the Ferris WB's. Ferris claim theirs will run 8mph. Lesco claims their hydro WB's go 8mph. Now if I never did anything to my Exmark WB's and they go 6.2mph and put all 3 side by side like I have, and none pull away, then what conclusion do you come too?

9 mph is news to me. Brochure says 8mph.

My Exmarks ran right with the Ferris at 7 mph. And I reved the Ferris wb's up.
My exact words. Make sure you read the word "CLAIM"

I know for a fact that the Ferris WB's i had did not do the 8mph the MFG claimed. I am just guessing at the 7mph as that Exmark claims their WB goes 6.2mph

Mfg

Your manufacturer is wrong because I own one and I'm getting ready to replace it with an identical one very soon from a place in kcmo called wholesale small engines off of 12th street downtown for$650.

They did try to get me to upgrade to the twin but I wanted the original eng. I like it better.

All I know is they said no to pics or atleast didnt want to teach me how.

You can't post straight from the pc. You have to store them on the net first.

people aren't lazy or affraid to walk, they buy a rider for productivity. 40 yards a week divided by 5 employess pay equals no profitability to buy those engines every two years.

you guys are talking about 7 and 9 mph on a walk behind, obviously he likes to run/jog at 9 mph all over properties chasing his WB because he isn't afraid of walking, so we know he doesn't ride a sulky.

and as far as eXmark being a bad brand according to you, i'll buy all of them you have or get for 50 dollars each. reselling them or keeping them would benefit me financially.

on the subject again of eXmark and getting stuff repaired, eXmark, like most all others, isn't in the business of building motors. so your ferris stuff with Kawasaki's are built by the same Kawasaki that eXmark and everyone else uses.
