I just bought a Ferris IS700Z. BS 26 Vanguard twin with Industrial Service double stage air cleaner, 61" wide, deluxe seat, full 52" plastic/metal framed canopy, golf cart traction tires, extra seat springs. 3 or 4 year warranty, I forget. I feel like a king on his throne. It will last me the rest of my life. The Vanguard is a real power house and good on fuel like the other BS twins I have (22, 20, and 18 hp).

I got tired of my back hurting every time I wanted to mow. Now it doesn't. In what I will save in medical bills, not counting the lack of pain, it easily will pay me back for the purchase and then some. Mows a flawless pasture....looks like my lawn and no tractor ruts and holidays.

I also love those Briggs twin engines! Keep them clean, change the oil, and I installed NGK iridium plugs in mine. Those engines just love those plugs. One other thing, I run all of my engines on Hi-Test gas. They are just happier. No hunting or rough running. Zip.

Don't have a plug problem, but what iridium plug do you run, just in case? On high test vs low test, I just wonder how long it sits in the dealer's tanks before it's sold. You can look at the low test button on the pumps and it's well worn out, the mid somewhat used, not much, and the high test shiny and new! Next thing is high test is made for high compression anti knocking. BS engines aren't. But may be I'll try some anyway. I know some of my other small engines, recommend 89 min mid grade.....2 stroke chain saws come to mind....Stihl OM I think is where I read it.

Just had a thought. The high test additive package may be what your engines like. I think I read somewhere where it's more comprehensive than the minimums used in the 87.
