Are you getting ready for a Ferris Sam? I went to our nearest dealer a few days ago. Got their full brochure. Unfortunately this dealer only has one left. A little 48" "S" model. Not interested in it but he says he won't get anymore until next year. Supply problems. But looking at the brochure I can see I'd certainly like to get maybe a 61 or 72 inch diesel model. It ain't cheap though. Yikes!!! Sure does look like a sweet ride for mowing. I'd like to take my micrometers with me the next time I'm over there as looking at the blades, I think they are thicker than the ones on my current mower that I occasionally bend. My Land Pride dealer used to be able to get heavy duty blades that fit but he went out of business. My ZTR looks just like my Land Pride but he says there are no heavy duty blades. The Ferris looks like the heavy blades I used to be able to get. Just and observation.detailing one of my ZTR mowers that I'm going to sell.
Wow that trike must be wide, I would have thought it would fit too.Darn Sam, I wish my property was that level and debris free. I got trees everywhere that drop limbs all the time due to west Texas winds. I'll be danged if I know where the rocks come from. You'd think by now I'd have hit and removed all of them but I keep finding new ones to hit. I'd have to look at the brochure but that model you want only has the 5.5 gallon tank or is it the 11 gallon? I've got to have the 11 gallon or I'll run out when I'm the furthest from my fuel tanks. Switch over has saved my bacon numerous times. By the way @mike721, I had to add 4 inches to each side of my lift like yours when I triked the Indian. I originally thought it would be wide enough but it wasn't. That's in case when you get old and feeble and go with a trike of some kind.
You can step down one notch to the IS2600 with a Yanmar diesel with a 61 inch cut. I'm even afraid to price it. But boy would my back appreciate one of those bad boys.Not for me Larry! I just saw it posted on my Ferris FaceBook page and thought you'd like a look.
