    We've had over 20 of them during the past 12 years. They are extremely reliable machines. Those who know me here on LS will tell you I am their biggest fan of Ferris. Right now we have 7 Ferris WB's and Z's.

    Had a Ferris Hydro Cut I think it was called and not that impressed. Thing only had one hydro pump, to tell you ther truth I didn't realize that when I bought it, just thought wow gettting a great deal on a hydro. Dealer ordered it.

    Well that first day we sure missed having that second pump, LOL, machine went back for a trade real quick.

    Seemed tough and durable though.

    We have an IS 3000 and love it. The 1500's are nice too.

    i had a ferris belt driven walkbehind loved that mower. Had no complaints on that machine other than the kawasaki engine was nearing death. Mower made me a lot of money and had to put little back into it. I'd buy another ferris if i didn't get a sweet deal on my scag now. Good luck with the ferris i'm sure you will love it.
