I had the opportunity to demo the 32" Ferris hydro the other day. Nice machine. The hydro and instant reverse were wonderful as I have only tried out belt drives before. On the other hand, the unit has to be manually steered which makes for a tiring time on tightly landscaped properties. If you own or have used this unit, what are your experiences with it? Also, is there a mulch kit available for it? The unit I tried had standard blades and was set up for side discharging. This lead to a lot of blow out with clippings landing in beds and on cars.
