Looking to buy a 52" Hydro Walk Behind. Have narrowed my choices down to Ferris and Exmark. Scagg is overpriced for my use. Most of my cutting will be personal lawn, 1 acre. (yes i want a walk behind) Has anyone used both mowers? Is one built better than the other? Does one machine cut/stripe better than the other? After talking to several dealers (most have a biased opinion of course) most recommended Exmark. Some even said buy anything but a Ferris! There aren't many Ferris dealers in my area, so I don't think people know much about the machines. Is 15hp enough or do I need 17hp? Which machine is more maneuverable? The wheels on the Ferris are almost as wide as the deck. I have lots of flower beds to cut around. I'd like to hear opinions from people who use these machines everyday, rather than those who make money selling them. Thanks for the input.
