    Have you guys looked at the 2007 Ferris walkbehinds.

    I'm impressed with what they settled on for a final product.

    Yeah I bought one last month, the new controls are the most comfortable and user friendly invented. They are going to clean up for a few years

    Upstate NY is hilly right?

    Let me know how it does.

    What size did you get?

    Ferris is definatley coming back into the commercial mowing industry. I tried a few demos at my county fair but wasn't too impressed personally. Very well built high quality mowers though. Scag has to be my #1 choice still.

    Ferris has always put out a very reliable machine IMO...we have been using them exclusively for 13 years now.

    Envy, prior to the snow falling, we ran it on every hill possible, and I have never seen a mower hold a hill like that. And the new safety sensor grips are sweet. Going to be a great machine

    Even the previous DD was at the top of the market in my opinion. That wide rear track and smooth hydros just made sense.

    What changes "if any" did they make to the deck.
