    Anyone own or use a Ferris model 320 mower? It is the 3 wheeled out-front type with a 61" deck and 20hp Briggs Vanguard engine. Are Ferris products reliable? I mean are the decks of good quality and the hydro system durable? I have never owned a vanguard engine, how do they compare in terms of reliability with other common v-twins? The particular mower I am looking at has less than 400 hours on it. I just wanted information from Ferris owners before I buy. Thanks.

    If I am not mistaken "rodfather" runs all Ferris equipment. I can't personally have not used any, but they look to me as a well built machine.

    Ferris products in my mind is one of the best built out there.The model that you are looking at is a great machine and 400 is not alot of hours
