    Selling a Ferris 4500 with the 28 Cat Diesel. Less than 300 hours (in my storage will check actual hours when I get the pictures) it was owned by a home owner cutting 3 acres. He defaulted on a retaining wall I did and this was my payment... :hammerhead: Well I don't need this machine and hopefully I can find a home for it. For the guys out there needing a big work horse this season you can save some serious $$$ on this deal. Asking $8500 obo will have pictures up today yet. Thanks for looking :drinkup:

    Just across the tracks...:laugh: West Bend. And I did try it out in the fall to test "diesel power" on a mower and it was unreal cutting 5 inches of wet grass with leaves! Now I did have to go back and cut it again but I wanted to really test it on a overgrown wet lawn. Finish cut was nice on the second pass of my torture test.

    Oh yes lol I remember you now. Well I am in the market for a mower. So maybe I will have to come look at this sometime. I would like to sell my Bobcat first though. Your mower seems like a great deal though!

    Also possible interested in trades plus some cash if the deal is right...

    Looking for low hour 52" stander (prefer stander X or V ride), 48-52" walk behind, or maybe a sit down 61"

    Just trying to get the most out of a home owner that didn't want to pay...

    Or even a 4x4 UTV? What do you have, will consider anything really...:D

    Cheers :drinkup:

    I would probably be interested in working something out! I need to pay taxes, and see what kind of money I have left over. Do you want to PM me your # or what you were thinking?
