    I have a ferris 1500z 52" and my buddy says his super-z is better because ferris is bad on hills and has a high roll over risk, and the deck on a super-z is much better, and said I should have got a bulkier ferris like a 2000z or a 3000z. I know the super-z is faster but I dont think it can get into places my ferris can and I think the 1500z has a better trim because it is not so bulky, what do u guys think agree or disagree, I have 3-weeks to take it back and if I was going to get another mower I would get a super-z, I actualy looked at them first.

    I don't have any experience with a Super-Z, but I can tell you that the Ferris isn't a bad mower. If you are dealing with any kind of slope I would have gone with one of the larger ones like the 2000 or 3100 but I don't think the 1500 has a "higher roll over risk". It would probably just lose traction easier. From my experience the lightweight ZTRs don't hold a hill as good as the heavier ones.
