BTW, i have found only 2 websites that sell OEM Ferris parts, not sure about accessories but they are full price so they are useless. Hook up with your dealer and ask for 10% off, about all you can do.

Here is what i'm rolling with:

As for the sound, i've heard that timed blades can be noisy. I have no clue if that's true or not. I run an 2011 IS3100Z with an ICD deck and let me tell you i love the machine and love Ferris products. I really want to buy a 36 hydro like yours. Would love to see a property freshly cut. Throw up a pic
Hehe... no, I'm serious - I used a 21" Toro Super Recycler for my first season (last year) and I've never operated a walk behind, or even seen one in use up close for that matter.
I know from practicing in my back yard that it's tricky to turn completely around without chewing up the lawn, but it can be done - I just don't know anyone to show me the ropes.

Not real sure about the blade noise not having been around anything else to compare.

I think I can accommodate your request for "a pic".

(Although I won't be using it on any "nice" lawns until I get a better handle on using it)

Hey. What size shirt do you wear? Dealer gave me a Ferris "Big Block" shirt that I probably will never wear... size XL. If that fits, it's yours.

Thanks.

I saw that site when I was looking, but like so many of these small accessory manufacturer websites, they provide very little info on the most common question - "Will it fit my mower?"

Well it's not a direct bolt on but really close. I had to drill two 5/16 holes on the deck and mounted the other end to my dash board , no drilling there but really worth the money.. Here is a link to my pics to give you an idea...
