Value of a Ferris IS3000z

Has anybody bought a used Ferris 3000z ? Mine is a 2008 with 500 hrs and considering selling it.What did you pay for yours so that I could figure out a ballpark price for mine.

Sorry but you'll only get around $3500 max. It's six years old and out of date. Ferris has changed a lot on their machines.

I would guess you'll be between the numbers listed depending on overall condition, engine, and if there are any extras such as a bagger, $3500-$5500, since the hours are still somewhat low and the IS3000 did have the full suspension. Just depends on how fast you want to sell it and the market in your area.
I just bought a 2011 IS2000 52" with 25 hp Kawi used with 77.1 hours in like new condition for $5300 for reference (I consider that a great deal!)

I was hoping with the price of new ones that I would be closer to $6k.I know the decks have changed,but I do not seem to have any issues with mine,but then I have never used any other brand.I am getting toward retirement age and trying to update all my man toys before I retire.

This will give you a ballpark figure on your mower's worth. This one has over twice the hrs of yours, and is probably in rougher condition, so you'll have to factor those points in.

Also, keep in mind this one hasn't actually sold for 4K yet.

Good luck w/your sale! Stan

....and the "new" 2000 series is now the "old" series replaced by the 2100 series...... I would think a IS3100 with 500 hours in good shape would be worth $4500-$7000 depending on actual condition and attachments, quick sale probably in the $5000-$6000 range
