Here ya go.
As you know I was very sceptical of this. But from my experience so far, Ive had absolutely no negative results from the deck/susp movement. In fact I am getting an improved more even cut over rough terrain particularly deep ruts, where a non-susp ZTR deck will move with the frame creating a high spot and low cut, the Ferris cuts very level due to suspension, a part where I thought would be worse is actually an improvement. So Im very pleased with this to say the least!
I think youd be impressed, I know you have demoed but Id be surprised if you demoed again and could find any faults on this subject
Do you guys all cut grass at WOT all the time?
Only using half throttle for warming up and engage/disengage blades?
I occasionally cut grass at 4/5ths throttle, when the engine is still warming up in morning for a couple minutes. Aside from that Im always cutting at WOT due to the correct cooling of engine/hydros.
Ah yes that happens occasionally, so I speak without thinking, what else is knew
I really do need to demo the 3100. Its a bigger, heavier machine than the 2000 I demoed.
I can promise, the 2000 is nowhere close, and I mean close to being in the same category of the 3100. The 2000 I operated felt like a toy in comparison, nothing about anything concerning the cut or operation was even close in relationship. You could not pay me to take a 2000, but I would buy a 3100.
The 3100 looks much more stout. I really liked the icd deck on the 2000 which is also on the 3100.
You can believe me when I tell you the difference in a 2000 and 3100 is like the difference in a homeowner box store mower versus a well built commercial grade mower.
I've got a 2013 Bobcat Predator pro with the Kaw DFI and I love the engine. It has an amber light and a regular throttle lever. Good enough suspension but I expect the 3100 rides better. I love the way my BC cuts and the deck with G6 blades turns the clippings to bits. I see similarities with the 3100.
This is an excellent machine, extremely powerful, yet fuel efficient, and the Bobcat gives a very good cut. My dealer has sold 350 or possibly more Bobcats this year, I see them on LCO trailers very often, say two new ones this morning.
