Price Paid : $6,900.00
Years of Use : New Owner (0-1 Year)
Implements : 52" deck, headlight kit
Purchased From : local Ferris dealer
Strengths This model doesn't have true independent suspension at the front, but a pivoting axle/shocks. It still rides more smoothly than any other ZTR I demoed. 25 Kaw provides plenty of power. 52' deck yields 4.5" of trim capacity, for less line work afterward. Sturdy, heavy duty commercial quality throughout. Simple, precise deck height adjustment. More than enough speed. Quality cut.
Weaknesses More motor = thirstier. ROPS provides a margin of safety on slopes, but is definitely a PIA around lower hanging tree branches.
Overall An extemely well engineered product with the best balance of power, speed, comfort, and productivity I could find, for under 7K.
