    Well, it all depends on the price. I looked at Ferris and they were about $15,000-$20,000. I really would not spend the extra $5,000 just for a little shock protection for the rider.

    The most expensive Ferris Z is the IS5000 at around 15 or 16 grand (don't know where you got 20K from btw). And no, you're not spending an addtional 5K for the IS system. The IS5000 is a 72 inch machine with a 31hp Cat engine.

    When I demod a Ferris mower it was awesome. I did cut great, and the ride was second to none. But only thing I didn't like about it was deck was very hard to lift up & machine felt little bulky.
