    i just dont want to hurt anything on the ferris. the swisher weighs about 100lbs more than the recomended towing cap. (about 600 lbs)of the mower(ferris). but they sell these mowers to be towed with small garden tractors. do zero turns differ that much as far as towing? bad for the hydro pumps?
