    Our Ferris gets used and abused on all the ruff terrain. the independent suspensions makes it much smoother and less fatigue. Ours is a 60in cut and since we bag doesn't get used as much as i would like. Ours is heavy and that one maybe as well. We have had very few problems over the past 3 years with it and it takes a beating. good machine

    my company has had over 20 ferris machines in the past 14 years. very reliable and well built units.
