    The ferris was about $500 cheaper around here and has the 21hp kawi with the 48in deck. John Deere makes a great machine, though, and has the better deck.

    It will be for a 1 acre yard. Overkill? Maybe a ferris is500 or smaller deere?

    have you mowed with either one yet? Check out my thread. I just demo'd both of these units back to back and my decision was easy. the ferris shined... look for my thread called Mower Selection. btw, my yard is 1.25 acre.

    The Thread is here.
