Well, I went to the store of a good friend today to just "look" at a couple of EverRide Scorpions he had. I left with a Woods 61" 33hp Generac mower. I drove a Scorpion around the parking lot and felt a little uncomfortable. I think if I had a whole day to drive it around on different yards, I'd get the hang of it. The main drawback was the 52" deck was not much bigger than my 48" Ferris. The dealer owner (my friend) lives behind the store and he told me to go mow his yard with the Woods and see what I thought. The Woods is a great mower. It goes 13.5mph and I never bogged the engine, even in thick, damp grass. With no stripe kit, it striped fine. Even my yard, which is not great by any means, had a good stripe after I cut it. The suspension seat rides very well. Something that I really liked is the deck lift. It seems really insignificant, but after mowing for just 2 minutes, I realized how great it was. I can lift the deck all the way up with the foot pedal, but not latch it in the up position. On my Ferris, I always had to be sure not to lift the deck too high when crossing a driveway or going over a bump because it would latch. With the Woods, I just pick the deck up and drop it back down. Yeah, insignificant, but a noticeable difference. I wasn't really planning on buying a mower today, but I had been looking at mowers and pricing, planning my next purchase. My dealer offered me a great deal, probably too good to post on here. He said it was a 2008 model year closeout since they had 2009 models coming in, with an $1100 price increase. He had this marked at $8350+ tax. I got it for less than that. Anybody near Oakboro, or even if you have to drive a ways, Oakboro Tractor is the place you need to go. I'll get some pics of mine soon. Here's a stock photo from the Woods website. P.S.--Anybody want to buy a Ferris IS1500Z 48" 21hp Kawi with 154 hours? Gator blades, 2 sets of high lifts, and Grass Gobbler/Leaf Gobbler included with the sale. Send me a PM.
