Oh now that's what I'm hoping my lottery ticker purchase has.
I can just feel it this is the one~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ and then
I took the 27 HP Ferris out for a spin today. Ran it up some hills, across some farm field rugged grass, cut high grass as fast as it would go.
Man, compared to my little Scagg that thing in like a Kawasaki 2 cycle four cylinder motorcycle (anybody remember that man eater?).
Anyway, I ordered one. I'll get it Friday or Saturday. I may enjoy mowing.
I remember the murder cycle you speak of. The 750 was insane. Not much till you spooled it up a bit, but then it just screamed! Unfortunately they had nowhere near the suspension or brakes to deal with the power. Truly the most dangerous bike I think I've ever ridden.
Edit: hope your mower is nothing like I remember those 2-stroke Kaws.

Oh how true.
It did need a fair bit of modding to ride safely/
Took delivery yesterday. Cut 4 acres in about a third the time my old scagg took. Wind in my face and the suspension ohhh wow.
I've read the Pooh Poohing on a few forums about the suspension. something about how it's just a lousy spring - yaddda yadda. Those guys are just blowing smoke and ill will. The suspension on this thing is dream like. Mowing the same patch of rural grass on a mower with no suspension and before on foot, for twenty+ years I know where every single bump and hollow is. But on this machine I hit them at dramatically faster speeds and don't feel them even remotely like before.
It's amazing how much of a difference it makes.
Though not as fully suspended as a Ferris, I run a 60" Dixie chopper on a rural property. Ended up taking some air out of the high floatation tires and putting springer front casters on it and it made a night and day difference.
Mui creative~!! did you make them yourself?
No, the flotation tires with ag tread was standard for years, but I think they are moving away from them.
The springer front forks are also a product they offer.
Still standard on the Industrial line (Classic and Excalibur). The "commercial", use that word loosely, and home owner line now have the Turf Tech tires.
Yesterday I mowed a 25acre Lawn that I haven't mowed since 2006
My 06 DC 3372 was a smooth ride but was bumpy on this lawn
Yesterday I had my 2010 and 2012 DC 3372 springer forks air ride seat +the floatation tires It was a super nice ride.
The ride of a Dixie Chopper since 1985 is reason I keep buying them
Floatation tires vs no sidewall tire I pick Floatation
