Well, After a few threads, hours of research, and weeks of traveling around Louisiana to all the different dealers, I have made a summery and would like to know yalls opinions on an atleast 2 year lifespan, power, and quality. All of these are the ones in my price range. Ill start with the Toro Z master 48" 19hp kawasaki. Th price is about $5,500.00. Only thing I dont like is th 7 gauge deck. Then theres the Scag Freedom Z 48" deck 26hp briggs. Price is about $5600.00. Thing I dont like is you cant grease the spindles. Then theres the hustler Fastrack 48" 19hp kawasaki $5600.00 (listed as a residential mower with commercial features) Then theres Ferris IS 500z. 44" 24hp briggs, all wheel suspension, 10 gauge deck, greasable spindles for $5000.00 Now all In all the Ferris sounds and looks like the better deal. It seems to be the most commercial/ease of maintenance built. The only bad thing is the 44" cut but I wan live without a 48". Between all of these, Would you say Ferris is the better deal also?
