In May I sold my Snapper WB and purchased a Ferris 1000z 48" cut. I have taken on some larger properties (3-8 acres) now with a lot of wide open cutting. I now feel like I would be better off with 61". What I am wondering is will a 61 save me much time? When thinking about it, it seems like it would. I am considering either the IS 3000 with the 25hp or the IS 4000 with the 27hp. Any input is welcome.
