Ferris Evolution opinions?

What is the general concensus about ferris mowers here? I have been leaning toward scag or exmark for a new rider when the time comes. But, I like the looks of the evolution. It looks like it is a bit smaller than a conventional ZTR rider, which is a plus in my book. But, I don't see much discussion of ferris here.

I don't know much about it, I did sit on one and I didn't like the seating position myself... Mainly that I felt it would be difficult to quickly dismount the mower in an emergency.

I have heard that it the cut quality is excellent and much better than anything else they offer, however that is not personal experience, just what a friend told me. Take it with a grain of salt:)

I demoed one last summer and liked it. But for us it was too slow at 8mph.
