I have been posting about how i have tried all these different z's. Weeks ago i tried a ferris and didnt like it. Tonite i gave them a second look, and im not sure why, but i cant figure why i passed on this before. I demo'ed a 1500 48" cut. Can anyone tell me anything about these. Are they good compacts? Are they bad? I am pretty much going to buy it before the week is out. I was at the dealers demoing again the scag cub, and noticed the ferris. I demoed it, and it just didnt feel as good as ferris. And i can get the ferris for $600 less than the cub, and ferris has a bigger motor, and suspension. Any thoughts on these machines would be greatly appreciated.
