    When they first came out they had some issues with deck alignment and uneven cutting because of the crank adjustment. Getting ready to buy new walk behinds and am worried about issues with more moving parts on the newer design. Wasn't much to go wrong on the old decks. Anyone with considerable hours on them having any problems? Thanks

    I have a 08 DD and haven't had any issues with it other than the bearings going bad in the idler pulleys on the deck. I measure my deck every season.

    same here i have six ferris walkbehinds and the only problem i have is my 61inch 09 model doesnt have the cut quality of the 52inch mowers we have and it tends to scalp a liitle bit but they r rock solid machines the newer ones run just as good as the older ones but i love all of mine!
