    1st of all i mow my personal property i do not have a business ,but i do mow 5.5 acres (rough land) i have demoed both the super z and the ferris is3000 both with the kaw 25hp. like the z and the better warranty i wondered if someone with more experience would have any input. I worry about the extra moving parts on the ferris wearing out i.e pivot points

    I have the Super Mini Z for about 2 years and no problems except replaced the red knob that engages the mower blade. It was under warranty.

    Just change the oil every 50 hours and other general maintenance.

    thanks for the info the z has a pretty strong warranty and the only reason i consider the ferris is the suspension just don't know if it is as well built?
