Wtb exmark, toro, or scag $$$$

Looking to buy an exmark, toro, or scag zero turn. Im looking to spend around 6000 dollars. Id like to have a 52-60" deck. Im not looking to go overboard and pay over top dollar for the mower. Its pretty easy to get online and look up the average price of mower you have. haha
Let me know what you have!!!

I will sell you my Ferris for $4000. It is like new with 296 hours on it. It has 3 or 4 sets of blades, a striping kit, and a new battery. Its a 48" but can't beat it for the money. You have a Ferris already so you know how nice they are.

I bought my first zero turn last week! Things are different this side of the pond. Anyway I got a Ferris 2500, what a great machine. On rough ground it is so so comfortable, I plan to buy one or two more over the next year or so. Currently I am using
2 Ransomes Parkways
Amazone profihopper 4x4i
Shibaura CM64
Kubota G2100
Ferris 2500

yea, i am looking to get rid of my ferris. I am not happy with the cut it leaves. The lift of the deck is not great at all. Even in short grass, it always leaves blades of tall grass, even with newly sharpened blades!

I don't know what to tell you there. I have never had an issue like that at all. Everything I cut looks awesome and cut even. I have pics to prove that so I am sorry you have had a bad experience with yours but I love mine, I just don't need a commercial machine to mow my yard. I only use my mower 5 minutes to cut my lawn.
