    was looking for opinions on the above mower, I am looking into purchasing one, I can get one brand new for around 2grand with shipping, comes with 2 year warranty. I have only owned exmark, never a ferris, so any opinions would really help,

    Top of the line. Great cut, great machines and look sharp. Proper greasing, oil and filter changes guarantee longevity. I own Ferris machines and would never buy anything other. You won't, can't go wrong with a Ferris machine.

    too let now, why couldn't you chime in earlier, decided to not bid, the price was last at 1325, I got a quote of 325 shipping, so if the price didnt go too much higher I would have it for under 2000. BUT no replied to my tread. oh well. Like I said before I dont know anything about these, so I didnt want to buy something no one knew about

    You would have wasted your money anyhow, Got to go with a dd. No way I'd want to swing a 48" sd around all day.

    yeh whats the deal with that, the only thing I found on here was someone put brakes on it so they can turn it

    I guess cost saving?? Not a good example of a ferris. They suck on hills and are not made to drag you around on a velke. Just not a good commercial set up imo.

    Don't buy a single hydro, ever. That's the best advice that I can give someone.

    Sorry so late, I've been so busy with plowing I haven't had the opportunity to go through lawnsite.

    I just noticed you first posted yesterday. When making a purchase such as these you should consider putting in more time and effort into the pro's and con's of purchasing what you want. Before I buy I put in at least 24 hours worth of homework into what I'm buying. Price matching, service locations and comparing one to another to see why one is better than the other.
