    Hey guys, been looking at the Ferris 32 hydrocut for a while now and for the amount of lawns i do i think i might just go with a nice 21 inch. so if i do this what brand and model should i go with? here in Canada mowers cost a heck of a lot more than in the states so I'm looking at around 800-1500 for the average commercial 21". also I'm not just looking for the best price or even overall machine specs. I'm looking for the BEST cut, quality next, dealer support, and then price.
    Thanks guys,
    Matt

    aha yeah i guess i think it has something to do with importing all the stuff made in the states... but even the made in china stuff is all more expensive so mabye you are right in a way

    yeah i looked in to that but i wasnt sure about that 26inch blade bogging down in tall grass? and does it bag as nicely as the 21?

    Stick with a 21" mower. I had the Exmark 26". Terrible machine. It bagged well but had no power for mulching and the amount of mechanical issues was insane. Eventually, I got it replaced for an Exmark 21". This has been a fantastic machine. Going with a toro, exmark, or honda would be an excellent choice.

    I couldn't tell you about any 21 or 26 inch I just seen them before at the dealer. I wouldn't use anything that can't pull me or I can't stand or sit on.

    yeah thanks i was leaning towards a toro from my local dealer right now i use a toro and it does a great job just starting to show some wear and figured beter to replace now rather than in the middle of the season and have to get used to a new mower.
