    I'm looking at the ferris for 1.5 acres, i have some ruff areas so i think think the shocks will be great. Anyone have experience with this mower? 61'' deck and 26hp Kawasaki.

    Check out my thread:

    Is this for commercial use or resi use? Either way this machine will do well on both. I would only buy this machine with a 52 tho, my thread will explain why.

    Ferris makes great equipment, the 2000 tops out at i think 10 mph and with ferris you can mow at full stick so the 3100 was better for me. Although i find myself still wanting a 2000. Thats how how their machines are!

    It will be for residential, just 1.5 acres. I like the 3100, it's just more than i want to spend. I can get the 2000 for $7500.

    Thats a good price. What engine & deck combo tho? For me for you for resi i would buy a 2000. They are very solid, comfy machines. The ICD cuts great and stripes great. Check out ths thread for some proven evidence:

    It's a great mower you will be very happy with it.

    We have a 2000 and a 3100, for what you are doing the 2000 will be great.

    Only thing is I would want it with the Vanguard Big Block, not the Kawi, I have heard bad things about that motor. Our 2000 has a 30hp BB.
