I also have been looking at ferris IS 1500Z. I would like to know the average prices for it. It looks like it will do the job for my customers because it goes 10mph! and it has susspension wich is a must!

I agree with the Ex-Mark assessment. My Metro has provided me with excellent service for the past three years.

If you have a lot of hills than stay with the hydro units.
I use Exmark and Toro products and have good service from them.
If you have 3 acres to mow I would get a big deck.
Now about which unit to buy--- I am sure there are a lot of dealers around you. Go out and demo-demo-demo.
Only you can decide which mower you will like.
As far as performance, most name brand, commercial units will work well.
But you have to shop.

as pm said you need to demo mowers, but they are not going to let you leave with a mower at 15...... so you will need to get hellp from an adult
