I'm looking at getting a 72" ZTR and have narrowed it down to either a '04 model (zero hrs) Ferris IS5000z w/34hp gas or an '05 72" Dixie Chopper. The Ferris dealer is offering it for 10K out the door (+tax) and the Dixie Chopper is $9,600 (+tax) for the fast one. This will be used at my home on 10 acres, 5 of which is field Bahia and the other is St.Augustine. Lots of room to run between trees but the back 5 is pretty rough with gopher-turtle mounds and holes. My neighbor up the hill has 45 acres and a Dixie Chopper. He says it beats him to death but runs it wide open regardlessly because he can. I need the best of both. Any suggestions?
