Thanks for the pic. Yes It is huge!!!! I would just luv to take this to my customers smaller yards and see their jaw drop. I know it is overkill but man I bet this thing would never bog down.

I can attest to the fact that it doesn't bog down. While testing it I felt like I could drive into the woods and mow down trees. Trees no, but saplings wouldn't stand a chance.

Maybe you've seen it, but there's a video on YT of a guy one a Deere 777 IIRC, mowing down bamboo for crying out loud, and it's actually doing pretty well considering the size of the trees he's mowing down.

That 5100 oughta do really well LOL

You're refering to the MF mower, way over sized for what it is. I was talking about a Lastec mower, a bit of overkill for the average LCO but a really nice machine.

What size tires did the Ferris have?, that mower with a 61 inch deck makes no sence. You would need those big tires to keep it from getting stuck.

Those tires should be on all 60 inch plus Z's.

I have noticed some wide dixie choppers .Will a bigger machine handles bumps and slopes better? Since having a wider wheel base?
Used to work for a company that uses 72" Dixies. Awesome machines and they used them where ever they could.

Would hold hills really good.

Yaa I found the same thing a 72 with a wide stance can hold a hill.

I would have to say the Dixie Chopper Excalibur 74" or some of the Industrial Deere's. But most of those Deere's are not true ZTRs
