    looking at picking one of these up based on the suspension for the most part, I have only ever used toro zero turns so looking for feedback from owners.
    How accurate is the .8 gal/hr fuel consumption???:confused:

    Thanks

    If you are getting a 61 then look at the 2500 save some cash

    Suspension quality is remarkable and unbelievable. The ICD deck is as good as it gets. I own the 3100 32 briggs and the 2000Z. The 5100 suspension is even better which is hard to imagine but it really is like you re on a four wheeler. Ridiculously comfortable. Nothing compares to the ferris 5100.

    Best review I have seen on a 5100. Convinced me to buy one late last fall. The 5100 is a brute and the ride is everything I expected but I haven't used it enough yet to determine fuel consumption.... :)

    If you need the 72 then yes get one. I might need to buy one based on a bid. Ferris is the only mowers we will buy now.

    I don't know if any one is looking for a used ferris. But my dealer in town has a 60" with a cat diesel and it has only 400 hours on it. nice machine. They aretrying to get $7,000 for it.....I thought I would pass it along. Thanks
