Next time I buy new mower I`m going to try them. test drove 3200 with big block vanguard on it loved it. After talking to sales men I could have paid the same this mower as I did for my JD 930`s. I bought three new JD 930 in 2014. They are great on tall grass (bush hogs), but there ride like a log wagon. I got the suspension seat for what good it did. This last summer one of them start consuming oil, about 1/4 a quart a day. I took it to dealer and left it with for warranty work. They did a leak test and found it was consuming , but JD warranty fix was for me to use a heavier weight oil. I talk dealer mechanic he said he though it was leak threw the valves. To say I`m a little pissed is putting it light. I gave $9000 for each mower, told dealer if they didn`t repair the problem the next time I get new mower`s it would be JD. they said they understand, JD warranty wanting use heavier weight oil and just monitor it. Well I sell my mower s and buy new ever four years and I`m going to try Ferris next go around.
