My dealer recommends the Ferris because of the suspension and more comfortable ride, but the majority of people online recommend the Scag. Also the other equipment I plan on purchasing is the Stihl Br600, the Stihl FS-90r, and the Stihl FC-95. I have already made a down payment on a 7' x 10' enclosed trailer and am currently looking for a truck. I would really appreciate any advice, suggestions, or comments on how you feel about the equipment I am looking at, or point me in the right direction if you feel I need it.
Thanks in advance.
I have a SCAG Cheetah, and it has by far the best ride of any mower that i have tried. We paid over $10k for the mower, is that in your budget? I hope you have some good size accounts to pay for this mower. Why not get a used Scag freedom Z? or Tiger Cub? they are about half the price
