From what the salesman at the local dealer tells me, they are basically the same mower. they share the same factory. Looking at a comparison on for example a 48" wb, there are very slight differences. Like the ferris has 1" bigger hydro fans. As far as ztr's i know the ferris has the IS mowers which ride incredibly nice. This year i saw the snapper prices drop $1000 across the board. Local dealer said he doesn't know if they will stay that way for next year or not, i hope they do because i am probably going with the snapper 48 because its at $4800.

From my knowledge on them, if you are looking at wb's i know snappers are 1k less. Z's I'm not sure what the cost is for what you get. I know i would choose a ferris is mower over a snapper z. I drove a snapper 60" with no suspensioning that retailed for $8500. But for about 1k - 1.5k more you can get a ferris is200 that has the suspension and i spent 120 hours or so this year riding an is200 so it is well worth it imo. I would buy one in a heartbeat if i needed one, vs a snapper. The icd decks are awesome too. Never had it clogged once, even in grass a foot tall that was wet going fast.
