    Being a Devoted Exmark Man I am proud to announce that I have been had! My Ferris dealer wanted to put one on my trailer real bad. He gave me a 52" to demo for the weekend. I liked the ride. They are the BEST and most comfortable ride in the game so far. I love this machine. The 25 Kawasaki is a nice back up to a 31 Big Block Vandguard and a 35 Big Block Vanguard. $7200 made me tell him put it on the trailer now. P.S. I sold the 04 Lazer 27 Kohler with bagging system for $6500 so $700 difference made it a No Brainer:hammerhead:

    Has anyone ever used the Ferris with a diesel?

    I ordered the striping kit today..............$79.............My Exmark kit was 399.00 I really starting to like the Ferris now. One thing that I knoticed though is it cuts high. My 07 XS cuts that way as well. I have been having to cut on the lowest hole. This SW Ga grass needs some H2O really bad.

    Please let me know how you like the strip kit. I was going to buy it, but held back. I'd like to get your take on it.
