Ferris Lawn Mowers
In 1986 Dave Ferris, a third-generation owner of the family’s milking machine company, predicted that milking machines were not the wave of the future and decided to change the company’s focus to improving commercial lawnmowers. They created a machine, brought it to a New York trade show and the rest is history. Today, Ferris continues to produce innovative and reliable power equipment for professional landscapers.
Ferris’s most powerful machine is the IS5100Z zero-turn ride-on mower. Powered by a 33.5-hp Caterpillar diesel engine, the IS5100Z is equipped with twin 7.5-gallon fuel tanks, a two-stage industrial air cleaner and both a primary and secondary fuel filter for maximum performance and durability. Choose from a 61- or 72-inch cutting deck, both of which allow you to easily adjust the cutting height to between 1.5 and 6 inches. Ferris’s unique patented four-wheel suspension system increases productivity by providing all-day comfort and a high-quality cut with every pass. The 4500Z, 3100Z, 2000Z and 1500Z all provide the same durability and performance in a size, strength and affordability that’s right for every landscaping professional.
Ferris’s three-wheel ProCut 20 lets you choose a Briggs & Stratton 20-hp engine or a 23-hp Kohler Command V-Twin engine and is available in 52- or 61-inch cutting widths. At ground speeds of up to 6 mph, the ProCut 20 mows up to three acres per hour.
If you’re looking for a walk-behind mower to complete your fleet, Ferris’s HydroWalk DD offers up a 15-, 17- or 23-hp Kawasaki V-Twin engine and cutting widths up to 61”. Steel channel handlebars and a wide, low stance offer comfort and stability and individual transmission brakes provide reliability and control. A quick-adjust deck allows for a wide range of quick height adjustments between 1.75” and 4.75”. The ProCut 20 also mows up to three acres per hour. If you’re in the market for something a bit smaller and more affordable, Ferris offers walk-behinds with smaller cutting widths built to the same stringent standards as the larger models.
