New 2016 turf tiger 2

I will be going later today to look at the new turf tiger ii . I have always ran ferris for my business. Ferris has been known for it's suspension. Icd is good but, i had clogging issues,when the grass is high.thick or wet. I ran most ferris models. The other problem was the dipping factor due to the the shocks,( shocks where adjusted to max} they claim it does not scalp, i'm here to tell you that's not true. Try going in reverse while cutting and stopping the front can dip scalping the lawn. Icd is good under dry conditions but so is everything else on the market. With so many different types of grass out here in georgia. You need a machine to get through the toughest conditions.

What are the updates/changes? We run all tigers and I bought 2 new ones last year so I'm curious to see what they did if there is 150lbs increase. Stupid emissions bs? lol

ETA: other than the control station and disc brakes, I don't notice anything.

The hubs for the brakes need to add atleast 20 lbs. Then the foot pedal, iso seat platform and tires.

Looks like they also changed the front forks to the Cheetah setup and increase the fuel tank to 12 gallon from 10 gallons.
