    Does anybody have any advice as to which one of these is the better mower? The two I have priced out both have 25hp Kawasaki's and are 60" decks. Thanks

    I demo'ed the toro before i bought my 3000 ferris 25/60. I believe that the toro is a great mower i just liked the ride much better on my ferris. I am planning on buying a toro for my next mower just because of pricing reasons.

    You should get the Ferris because of the better ride.

    I've always had Toro mowers and they have always worked very well for me. I ran a Ferris walk behind at a dealer once and wasn't overly impressed, can't speak for a Ferris ZTR though.

    Anyone have an approximate price for this mower? 2003 Ferris 3000 IS w/ 25HP Kawasaki, only has 125 hours on it. It looks like it is in pristine condition and everything is so clean the seller must have been verya nal about his cleaning strategies. He wants $8950 but it includes a $1000 trailer, and also some extra parts like blades, oil filters, and some other miscellaneous stuff.
