    I would choose the ferris. Don't forget the ferris will have a warranty and the cub only has a short time left if any. Use the search feature at the top of the page on both mowers and you can read for awhile about what folks think who own them.

    I wish I can get a Ferris @ that price in NJ, dealers are over charging and then put is on sale @ the msrp price and tell me that's the sale... so sad..

    Before you start talking, look at Cub Cadet Commercial stuff.

    Yes, it'd made by MTD, But it has different standards. Not the same stuff that is at home depot.

    Have you considered the scag tiger cub or the wild cat with the 48" deck I have been running scag for years now and I have never had any troubles with them. I have demo'd other mowers but none seem to give the cut that the scag gives.
