    I have found a 2005 Ferris IS3000 in good condition. It has 140 hrs, 27hp Kohler and is a 52".

    Owner is asking $6000 and that includes a 6 x 12 trailer. Is it worth it?

    Also what is the mower worth?

    jump on it. i dont know how much a new ferris cost but with only 140 hours the machine itselp is in the the 5000 dollar range. it also depends on the condition of the mower and trailer.

    I would think that the seller of said Ferris forgot to connect the hour meter or disconnected it.

    Who only puts 140hrs on a Ferris IS3000? Think about it. A 3000 is definetly a full commercial unit and 140 hrs seems wayyyyyyy too low.

    I agree rod father i live in them middle of walker nation and i have seen many homeowners around here that buy their own walker with the high lift just to mow thier own yard running about 14grand infact one of my customers has a walker with a high lift he mows on wed and hires me to come on sat to mow edge and weedeat must be nice to have the much money, now if i could only find one of those home owner walkers with about 140 hours but i never seem to happen on to deals like that
