I demoed ferris last week loved it but it clumps grass worse than any other mower I ever ran period! The demoed the diesel and it lost so much blade tip speed under normal conditions it was laying wind rows! Put a 1000cc v-twin in the ferris chassis with a deere deck and I'd buy one right now!

Did you see the video I posted of them running in the Altoz thread? Looks pretty good to me.
