    You'll find that everyone will answer that it depends upon the support that your dealer will give you, which is very true.

    You'll also hear many thumbs up from the users on here that all use Exmark, I use one myself, it's the best machine I've ever used. Never used a Ferris though. Many say that Ferris is good, but not with the overall number of users and the conviction that Exmark has behind it.

    I never heard Exmark being bad-mouthed that wasn't fixable or user error.

    I have hear Ferris being blamed for certain things that weren't fixable. I dunno..

    If you do a search, you'll find this topic mentioned a number of times..
