    Is the Ferris a HydroCut? If so then Ferris if not Exmark.

    Edit- Just realized Ferris only makes a 32" in the HydroCut so then I would go Ferris.

    bobcats not one of the choices and neither is 36". i've seen the ferris hydrocuts running around here lately. they look pretty nice. they're single hydro i believe. correct me if i'm wrong.

    I'd take a single hydro over NO hydro.

    We love our Ferris 32' inchers they are great machines but if your wanting a sulky it won't work these are single hydro as they have said.

    I am looking to buy ether a Ferris Hydrocut 32 or a Quick 36 for small yards.
    Does anyone have experiance with ether one or both?
    Mostly flat property. The ditches will be trimmed with a 21" mower.

    I decided my purchase will be one of these models.

    I guess I am trying to make a sound desision on overall use which includes:

    1>Ease of use.
    2>Reliability
    3>Trimming
    4>Quality of cut Short grass, Tall grass, Dry grass, Wet grass and Weeds.(Trying to stay away from double cutting of some weed infested lawns)
    5>Manuverability
    6>Cutting on very short 5 deg. hills. (One yard is 70 feet by 20 at most)

    Any help would be appreciated. I need to make a decision by tomorrow.

    Thank you.
