I've sold maybe 5-6 over the years. They aren't the funnest thing to work on. But they hold together well. But I will say that you will have to tighten up some bolts on the parking break a couple times a year. The ICD does have a great cut and they will surprise you how productive they can be with a good operator. The ferris is a little nicer than the snapper pro version since it has a better operator platform and pivoting front axle. We don't have hills here so I can't really vouch for that. But a good unit to consider for sure.
