Residential Mower Posted by pete on 11/08/2011

Folks, I realize I only have 40 hrs on this mower but I used it a lot this year in Mi. We had a lot of rain this year and grass and horse pasture grew faster than I have ever seen in 40 some years.

This mower will cut tall thick grass and pasture-by the way the last horse was put down humanely in January last year and the pasture grew 12-16" tall every week [it seemed]. I cut 3 acres once a week and this mower never bogged down-hesitated-coughed or sputtered.

I know it is the smallest ZTR rider Ferris has, but this mower with Briggs& Stratton engine [26 hp] kicked butt. Never used oil, air cleaner was always clean and it always started immediately. One thing is mulch kit does not work very well in thick grass-builds up-clogs cutting deck. Overall very happy.
