I was wondering what is the easiest 48'' deck to change?
I love my Quick 36 but it is definitely not easy to raise/lower the deck height.
Can't readily do this in the field....
Does Ferris make a 48"? I don't know but their 52" hydro is absolutely the easiest to change. You turn a crank and the deck goes up and down.
Scag pro v has a similar system to the Ferris mowers, but I am not wild about the new control system.
I LOVE the way my 48 Ferris Hydro changes height. It's a simple crank up or down and that's it--big change over how they used to adjust. Go ahead and get the bigger motor too, (I got the 19 Kawasaki). I don't think you'll be dissapointed at all! Good luck
How is the ferris's cut compared to exmark or any other leading brand?
to my knowledge the crank decks are fixed decks only, so if you are talking about a floating deck then i don't know, but once again i'm not sure on that...i know the john deeres aren't the easiest...
I like the Ferris' cut--I also use the pro-slide so that helps add more stripe to the lawn. Keep in mind that in GA the warm season grasses don't stripe as well as your blue grasses and fescues, but it does cut well!
Well in my area it's mostly st.aug and centipede
