    I just saw some Ferris ZTRs at my local dealer. They had indepenent suspension on them. Has anyone out there used the Ferris ZTR before, and if so, what is your opinion?

    Hey llama, saw one at the dealer yesterday. Nice looking machine and would like to try one out. Was the one you looked at in Glencoe by chance???

    They have one with the CAT diesel on it. It sounds just like a big rig. My buddy Rodfather likes Ferris mowers. He's all the real info I know about them.

    ...Did I mention that mean sounding diesel?

    Our Ferris 61" has been running great. Once you run the independent suspension for a few months, you will not want to go back to other ZTRs.

    The really nice thing about the IS system is the ability to adjust the shocks. I've been with Ferris for 9 years now using their WB's, Z's, and even a couple of 3-wheelers back when.
