    so I tryed the serch, didn't find anything current or usefull.

    I need a bigger machine to go with my 48" for doing some larger properties, the biggest being 12 acers of turf, smallest being 1/2 acer corner resi lots. I can get one of these machines for like $6400 compared to a toro z master for close to $11 000.
    Just wondering what the thoughts were on them, I know there entry level commercial, and I'm not super fond of the Brig's motors that come with them, but for 1/2 the money almost it may be worth it.:canadaflag:

    I have a ferris 500 as a back up. if you are going to compare mowers those two are no where near the same class. the 500 is good for the price but look at used mowers. there is bound to be someone in your area that needs cash and will sell cheap put an add on craigslist looking for one. i picked my 500 up CHEAP a year old.
