    I would say it comes down to cut quality. personally I did not like the ferris when we demoed it. it just did not cut well at all. IMO scags have the best cut i've seen or used for a ztr. i got an exmark 60" triton w/ 28 kawi for $8500. they have another one at the dealer for the same price. as for the engines. always had kawi engines and have always had great luck with them. no breakdowns (knock on wood) and run strong. havent had any experience with other engines.
