I went to my local Snapper dealer today and he quoted me a price of $7400 out the door on a S200x with a 61" deck and 27 hp Kawasaki with a suspension seat. He verified to me that these are built in the same factory as the Ferris. I drove and mowed with this machine and liked it. It was a little of a rough ride though. Does the Ferris suspension really smooth things out?
