    Looking at the Ferris 3000 with 27 hp 60 inch deck and the Lazer Z with 27 hp and 60 inch deck. Seemed to me the Lazer Z was a lot louder to operate than the Ferris. Am I really not comparing the two machines fairly? Also are you using ear protecters when using either or both machines? Where we used the machines could not tell much difference in the ride. Was fairly smooth yard so not sure how much diffence we should be able to tell. The new suspinsion seat on the Lazer Z seemed to work nice. Any comments on these two machines would be appreciated.

    What exactly was louder? The motor? The deck? The hydro's?

    Actually thought the deck was louder. I guess there aren't any noise specs on mowers. Is that right?
