I just got off the phone with the local Ferris dealer. They have had my 52" Ferris WB for about 3 weeks now. He said he was trying to figure out if I had a Hydo motor or pump problem. He now thinks it is a motor that went out and is trying to find out how much a new motor is from Ferris. My questions: 1. How much do you think this will cost? 2. Is the mower worth it? It is about 6 yrs old and has approx 1500 hours on it. 3. Where can I find a Hydro motor to make sure this guy is not going to rape me. This mower was bought from him and he has worked on it a couple of times. I usually do my own repairs, just don't have the time. He has been dragging his feet on this one. Also I did by it used from the original owner. Thanks for any input.
