    Any thoughts on the ferris 4500 z-turn, its looks pretty mean and you can get a cat diesel in it. How do they hold up, quality. Only see exmarks by us.

    I've run Ferris exclusively for like 13 years now, over 20 machines in total of WB's and Z's. Extremely reliable machines. The 4500 is a nice unit, gas or diesel. It looks alot like the 5100 which is Cat driven with a 72' rear or side discharge deck.

    IMO, you can't beat the IS on the Ferris Z's...they ride so nice.

    What does Ferris run for a PTO clutch on the Z's? Have you had any problems? How long do they last,hour wise?
