Thanks, i cut that property at 4" which i never do. When i demo'd Ferris (3 models) each one i felt the deck was off height by about .5" so i cut it at 4 when i normally cut at 3.5. Either height (3.5, 3.75, 4) the machine stripes extremely well.

I took it to my largest property today also the weediest and it performed better than expected. Still laid a nice stripe.

Easy answer, Ferris. My Exmark was a good machine, but i feel like my Ferris is a great machine. Now that Ferris has a real deck that can cut/stripe to me it was easy to make the switch. The ride is amazing, i'm really pleased with cut quality and build quality is superb. I think this machine is designed & engineered very well.

I have the new seat which is a non high back which i like better than the high back. Best way i can describer it is this seat is stiffer than most because it a better build quality than the old seats (non Ferris) but since the ride is so soft its a perfect fit. ZERO back pain and the fatigue from handling a 1300lb machine all day has almost been eliminated.

Thats one of the biggest benefits that probably goes unnoticed, i feel like i'm not working hard because i'm not as fatigued as if i would have ran a fixed frame machine all day.

As far as jolting the machine accepts most of the impact, however i have my springs set on 2 in the front and 3 in the back (1 = softest, 4 = most firm) so if i wanted i could get it even softer. I feel like this machine accepts the jolts on and XYZ plane. For those who don't understand machining its a 3 dim plane not just 2D. Overall i'm most pleased.
