Thanks guys for responding to my previous post. I sort of demoed it today. I got to drive it around the parking lot. I was very impressed with the mower. It turned great, really not much effort at all. Strong 13hp kawasaki v-twin. Even though I was impressed, I still have some concerns about pulling a sulky(the rep said that you still could, you just would'nt be as effective), also concerned about the hill mowing capability. I currently have a 36" toro floating deck with 15hp kohler and was really wanting to sell it and get a full hydro or an exmark metro. For guys who have used the ferris, would you recommend the 32" or 36" ferris hydro over my toro belt drive. I would love to have the 32" viking but just cant afford it. My dealer has the ferris 32" for $2200 and the 36" for $2800. He also said that the new 36" was going to hav ethe same controls as the 32" and was going to the 13hp kawa v-twin instead of the regular 13hp. I need help fast, I have to decide by the end of the week.
