    this info is from only looking at the websites ...but it seems that the ferris unit is the same exact unit as the snapper 32inch...except they changed the name of course...they even use the same exact pictures on their web-sites!

    does ferris make this unit for snapper?

    I've posted this before but haven't gotten any answers...anyone have any info?

    Thanks

    Ferris, Snapper and Giant Vac are all owned by Simplicity, there a a bunch of models that they cross brand, different colors, tanks, seats, deck, etc...etc...

    All of the above are the same unit, and the mfg is Giant Vac, they have made a version of this unit for many years, now that they are all owned by Simplicity they put em in all lines with different decals and prices, generally the Giant Vac is cheaper.
    It looks like there web designer / advertising guy is very handy in Photoshop...lol...lol..
    Hope this helps

    The Snapper and Ferris 32's couldn't be any farther apart...LOL.

    First of all, the Snapper is belt-drive, the Ferris is hydro. They both use completly different methods to adjust deck heights. Rear tires on the Snapper are smaller. Snapper is residential. Ferris is commercial...

    The above units are all gear drive units, and are identical other than in the Ferris pic they cropped out the deck cover knobs....

    Yes,
    Hustler builds the Land Pride units...but that is not what I was talking about John.
    And Hustler is not owned by another company, such as Simplicity owning Ferris, Giant Vac and Snapper or like Toro owning Exmark.
