    Has anyone seen or demoed the new Ferris Hydro Walk behind?

    I have seen it and I have drove it around the parking lot of the dealer (Scott's Power Equipment). It is a nice unit.
    Here's a list of things they have changed:
    New deck design
    The safty switches are built right in to the hand grips so it is like they aren't even there (very nice feature and they look just like a motorcycle grip)
    Fully adjustable floating deck
    Solid rubber caster tires
    Donaldson style air filter
    Thumb controls and pistol grip controls (this is kinda neat)
    They moved the parking brake lever.

    Basically it's the same weldament (what the motor and hydros bolt to) with the same eaton hydro's and wide stance as the old dualdrive but they have a different deck and some new features. Looks to be a nice unit.

    I'll try to take some pics if I think about it
