    Yeah, too much at any price. I have one. It's 2 years old and I've only put a little over 50 hours on it so far. It's difficult to steer and impossible on hills. Buy something else. You've been warned.

    I found one for $3000 around here, but I would agree with the above poster.^^^^

    I agree was going to buy one last year. Friend let me use his on a couple lawns. Did not like the steering at all. I could not even imagine using it on a hill. One thing I did like on the mower was the height adjustment. Wish the all smaller 32 or 36 inch mowers had the height adjustment the ferrris hydro did.

    Hey Richard isn't that drive system in the Ferris just like the Quick that everybody is all excited about?

    Yup. I've often thought about the Quick but after spending as much as I did on the Ferris I wasn't about to dump several thousand more on the Quick and not be happy.

    Quick is also hinting at a dual drive in the near future. Now that's something I want to look at. Anybody wanna buy a couple of used Ferris' with super low hours?
