Thanks for all the good words...

We have been real busy putting scratches and dents on all our equipment!!!

The Ferris is a 32" Hydro walk behind. We live just north of Austin TX. The total price was somewhere around $2,500.00. We purchased it through McCoys Lawn Equipment Center and got a sweet deal. The only down side is that you can't turn that mower without your feet planted on the ground. Which means it will always be a walk behind. There are no seperate controls for each wheel.

Yes, it is a single drive. It has "power steering" and turns easily once you let it know what you are doing. We are happy with it for now.

As for the blowers, I like the size and power of the Husky 25cc. But, it doesn't compare to the 40cc Echo. I have really seen the limits of the Husky with all the leaf blowing here lately.

We have the same machine. It is a good mower, lays good lines. It had a leaking problem at first, but the dealer squared that away in about 5 minutes.

As for turning, you can use a sulkie and it has more then enough power to pull it. The brakes are individual so it can power turn left and right. I was skeptical at first, but after using it for a while it is easy to control.

Downside besides the left/right throttle control is that the mower speed and the blade speed are not seperate.
