    It Has a 28hp efi vanguard. Throttle moves freely(as it normally would) but the machine won't idle. On startup it automatically goes to 7/8 throttle and if I bring up throttle to max it will then max out in rpm. It kinda runs like a little ruff at full throttle though. We gave it a full tuneup...

    Hi, we have a small lawn care business in Minneapolis / Saint Paul, and we're currently in the process of upgrading our equipment a bit. Up until now we've just been using a 42" cub cadet zero turn, and a push mower. We have both residential and commercial properties, but the majority is...

    Hello I have a 36” Ferris mower F60 with a Briggs and Stratton 25hp engine. I bought it from somebody with 73 hours on the engine and at 77 hours it blew a rod. YES I PUT OIL IN THE ENGINE. So my question is does anybody have any warranty information because the mechanic I took it to said I was...

    I have a Ferris z2 with Briggs efi vanguard motor with 200 hours. Bought new April 2018. Last spring the motor started malfunctioning by blowing black smoke and bogging down. Called dealer, recommended looking into 02 sensor. I changed with oem part and everything work normal. Into my third week...

    Hello, my name is Chris. I am new to this site. I'm not the owner of a lawn service, but I do mow my lawn and two neighbor's. Usually I use a push mower, garden tractor and string trimmer. Last year I purchased a well used Ferris Hydrowalk sd36. The machine needed a little tlc to get running...

    Hi, I have an old Ferris 61" zero turn (FERRIS 5900612 SERIAL 2000485600) with a propane conversion. Its relatively new to me. It currently has a Kohler CV750-011 30HP which apparently is no longer made. That engine basically needs to be replaced. Question, is there a replacement engine that i...

    Looking to get 2 matching machines this year for the business. This will be our first set of new, matched mowers that will be intended for employee use. I’m a Ferris guy but can’t help but to be impressed by the quality of cut and longevity of Wright standers. I’m currently looking at 2 large...

    Anyone have a silky mount for an older hydrowalk SD? I can make one easy enough but if someone has one that they don't need I'd like to have it. Pics below.

    Anybody ever have issues with the hydro walk SD transmission? Got this unit from a customer who had just put a brand new engine on the unit(Why? idk). But, whatever the case, it's a pretty clean unit that now has a new motor with a transmission that they don't make parts for. It seems like it...

    As I have been an owner of a Honda HRX 21” inch mulching mower it has treated me well and thought it was the best mower possible. As I ventured into the zero turn market I had done many hours of research and wanted to keep my budget under $2500 but knew that wouldn’t get me much. I came across...

    I wanted your guys opinion on this. I have a Ferris walkbehind with a mulching deck, and mulching blades. Most of my customers don’t fertilize, and water their grass daily. So when I cut them, it mulches nicely, it’s dry, no clumps, boom. I took on a few more customers that water their grass...

    I'm either getting an ISX800 or an ISX2200, 61". If the ride is half as good on the 8 as the 22 then I'm saving $2k. I asked the dealer to bring me an 800 with the biggest motor he has and that I wanted EFI. He said he's bringing out the carbureted 26 hp Vanguard 810 instead of the 27 hp Briggs...
