I decided to go with the Ferris IS500Z ZTR with 44" deck. I get to pick it up from dealer on Thursday. Will post pics as soon as I get equipment. I can't wait to get to work on that thing! Using that push mower has been brutal.

I got a new one. 0% financing. Luckily I don't need to rely on this income and can reinvest all profits.

Nice mower. Waiting on pictures. The only thing I dont like is the Briggs. That might not be a issue with proper care.

Yea I wanted the Kawasaki engine but I couldn't justify spending an extra thousand for the 1500z. Since im not running it 8 hours a day 5 days a week I think the Briggs will do fine. Same goes for the pumps on the 500z.

It would have been well worth the extra money but I hope you are happy with the one you got
