Any good? Thinking about buying but it has a B&S els 24hp.
I have the simplicity citation which is the same as the ferris.
I have only had it a short while but so far excellent..
My dealer said it's more like a home owner model. He didn't recommend it.
that is not true at all
other than being smaller it has all the same features as the large comercial ones.
the simplicity citation is next to the largest one they make.
The ferris 1500 has several more larger.
the residential ones don't even compare
I guess it all comes down to money
My mistake i thought you were talking about the ferris 1500.
clarification: ferris IS -500
I have yet to see anything on this model on any of the forums.
500 series is brand new with a 24 hp Briggs and 44" cutting deck
I'm evaluating the 1500 vs. walker MC as a homeowner. I've learned that the 500 has the briggs engine, rops doesn't fold, no fans on the pumps, drive tires and casters are smaller than the 1500
when my local ferris dealer was talking to a homeowner, the guy asked about the is500 he had sitting in the corner, where you couldnt even get to it. The dealer responded, "its got a briggs,.....over here we have the 1500 with the kawasaki" I thought that was funny. If the 500 had a briggs-vangaurd, it would probably do ok. I have never heard great things about the guys that bought the briggs for commercial use, unless it was the 35 Big Block.
The guy that cuts the jehova(spelling?) whitness church down the road from my house had been using a John Deere riding tractor to cut the grass. I guess in the last two weeks, he bough himself the 500. It doesnt have the foldable ROPS, and I wasnt really impressed with the cut..
Palmer, thanks for thr reply.
