    We have a Ferris with a 35 hp gas Briggs & Scrapiron that is by far the loudest gas or diesel engine I have ever heard (louder than our Toro 325D's). I swear when you rev that thing up, it sounds like a Cesna 182 on takeoff LOL.

    I own a ZD21 with the 3-cyl. diesel. Very quite IMO.

    I have a Zd21 not too bad. Just purchased a Hustler 34hp Cat.
    It's loud. Not all of the noise is the engine.. It has two big electric
    fans blowing on the radiator .. Plus the hydraulic pump seems to scream.
    Will need ear protection.
