    I have a 1995 48" walk behind with fixed deck. It is the best mower I have. It stripes good and has not given me any problems except for replacing trans this winter.

    A very good mower.

    I had a Ferris 36" walk behind belt drive. I got it in 1990 and sold it about 2 years ago. Never had any problems and is still running strong today as a retired haus. My friend bought it for his own lawn and loves it.

    I have never actually used one, but a friend of mine owns a mower shop. Both of us have been really impressed at their new line of mowers. I may purchase one this season.

    I had purchased three of the I/S models and had nothing but trouble with them. However I do think that they have improved there rider from the ones that I had, but I would probably not ever buy any of them again do to all of the downtime that I had with them.
