the time has come when i am going to start looking for a full suspension mower, not just the seat. went to the scag dealer and the new mowers only fully isolate the operator. i want the entire mower to have suspension so i am looking at the ferris. what should i expect of the drive motors and pump compared to a scag which is bulletproof? also a little annoying sidenote: my turf tiger doesnt have bypass valves for free wheel.
