    Has anyone demo'd this machine yet (Cheetah)? Local dealer is getting in a half dozen Cheetah's in the 48 and 52" size at the end of the month. With my back issues I am looking for the best comfortable ride. I am also considering the Ferris IS2000z. Any thoughts?

    I ran a Cheetah in the real world for a couple of weeks. Nice! Very smooth with a great mow on all types of grass and weeds. Oh! Very fast! I was mowing for a lawn care guy. I talked him into buying the Cheetah after a week long demo. I talked to him last week. I asked 1 to 10, how has the Cheetah helped his service. He said 10+! I've never been on a Ferris IS2000z.

    The Cheetah was a 31hp Kawi with a 61 inch deck. Plenty of power. Worked good on small lot. Did great on wide open rough land. I miss that mower. That was fun.
