    i looking at buying a ferris 1500z for 4000 with 100 hours on it, and was wondering if anybody else has one like this and how well do they do in the spring time, lots of clumping or does it give a decent cut any problems anybody have with it would like to know looking to buy soon

    cut and clumping are 2 different things. The cut on my 07 IS2000 is perfect. It doesnt throw the clippings like some of the others do though, which means its that much closer to clumping when the grass is wet.

    That sounds like a good deal. I would buy it.

    i usually double cut the first 2 months of the season i was just wondering if its horrible in the spring or does it cut pretty good it has a 25 kawasaki motor so i know it has enough power. i used a great dane stander this spring and it did alright 52'' with a 19 kawasaki. just looking for something with alittle more power but cuts decent.

    I've got a 09 1500z and I love it. Great cut and minimal clumping. I've had some nasty, tall, wet stuff lately with the afternoon showers, and I'm thrilled with it. BTW, message me with an address and I'll send a check for the JJ Trailermate Pro.
