If I were looking for a zero turn, I would consider comfort and the ground I would be mowing. If it is rough you will need a decent seat suspension system and good floatation tires. Zero turns don"t have suspension. I recently helped a friend out mowing his lawn. He has a new Craftsman zero turn and a Cub Cadet lawn tractor. His ground is fairly rough due to worm mounds and gophers. His zero turn nearly beat me to death. I had to switch to his lawn tractor which was considerably smoother. I realize the Craftsman is not top of the line, but it made me place seat suspension, tires and ground type as factors to consider.

Glen, Ferris does have front & rear suspension that is adjustable for body weight and field conditions. I use to mow open field that is not smooth like city lawn.Does a good job and on straight runs joy sticks full forward 10mph.

There ya go, learn something new everyday. I spoke with a Grasshopper rep who told me zero turns didn"t have suspension. That seemed to be confirmed by the research I did. I didn"t didn"t come across "Simplicity" or "Ferris". Are they commercial rigs or homeowner type? I was looking at a homeowner type to do about and acre of lawn. Looks like I might be back in the market.

Ferris is normally falls in commercial cat. Simplicity I'm not sure about but they are both made by same company-may be the same machine. I got mine from factory rep in Minn as could not find dealer in Mt. Its heavy about 1000 lbs made to last.I think might be a dealer in Spokane now.

Thanks, found a dealer in Jordan Valley, Ore. about 70 miles from me and another in Pocatello, ID, 260 miles or so. Their info on their suspension was very informative. Thanks for the info.
