Does anyone have any experience with these? My dealer was raving about them, basically said they were so popular they were flying off the shelves. But I've never seen one in use. Along the same lines, he also carries the Simplicity version, which doesn't look to be quite as heavy duty, deck wise, but does have the built in striping roller. I know both Ferris and Simplicity build fine machines for their intended uses, but don't know anything about these particular models. I'm primarily interested in picking up a trim mower for residential use, aprox. 2 acres, with some slope involved. (Not sure how to measure it, but there isa significant "pucker factor" on my Simplicity tractor.) The Ferris has a 13 horse Kawasaki engine, and the Simplicity has a 15 horse Briggs. Both are single hydros. I'm not too particular about brand name, but I would like to get several years out of the machine. Also, the Simplicity is going for about a thousand dollars less than the Ferris. So, I would appreciate any input, especially concerning ease of use and service, durability, quality of cut...you know, the kind of things you guys would know that your average homeowner would not. Thanks in advance.
