    This is my second year mowing lawns nd I am ready to look into a commercial ZTR or Walkbehind. What would be a preferable machine for Mostly small to medium sized residential mowing? I have 2 commercial accounts Takes about 2 hours mowing with a 42 inch John Deere Rider. Any brands that are best and or what would save me time. I have very limted knowledge of Commercial mowers. I do believe that Ferris mowers are built close to where I live. I also know of a Scag dealer nearby. Any suggestions would be helpful and appreciated.<p>Jeff Verry<br>Galena Greenhouse and Lawn Mowing<br>Upstate New York

    I would look at the Ferris Line of equipment, The Ferris ProCut Z With IS Independent Suspension is Awesome. And their Dual Drive Walk behinds are real nice.<p>Hope this will help you out.

    I would go either walker or Lazer Z if your looking for a rider. I like the ferris w/ the IS also. In my area scags don't carry the rep it appears to habe elsewhere

    I`ve been running Ferris for a long time and really love em. Their hydro walk behinds are the best out there. I just got an I/S last year ;what a great machine. The quality is top notch on all their products even down to the smallest walk behinds. You might not be able to find them in your area but I sure would try.<p>----------<br>gus....<br>
