    Hello, I have an opportunity to buy a Ferris IS4500 with a Caterpillar Diesel Engine for $9500. The machine only has 45 hours on it and has a 61" Deck. The original owner says he bought it brand new in the middle of last year.

    1. Is this a good deal?
    2. Does the IS 4500 have the IDC Deck?
    3. Should I be worried about the weight and width of the machine?

    Yes, it should and depends on what and where you will be mowing. If the deck has a sloped front then it is the ICD deck.

    The 4500 was never offered with the iCD deck.
