The 2017 Ferris 3200Z is one awesome machine! I replaced a four year old eXmark Laser Z X-Series with 72" deck and 37 hp with the same deck size and hp on the new Ferris. The ride, comfort, and ease of operation with the Ferris has reduced the mowing time on my 6 acre yard by at least 30% due to increased speed without giving up any cut quality. This is a superb piece of equipment!
In the fall of 2016 I purchased a Simplicity Prestige Mower and could not be happier. I have an acre and a half to mow at my cabin which use to take me several hours to mow. When I purchased the mower I also purchased the mulching kit in hopes I could mulch once in a while if the lawn didn't get too long. What I pleasantly found is I can mulch even if the lawn gets quite long, all I have to do is slow down which is still way faster than bagging. I takes me less than half the time to mow as it used to, and the fact I can mulch is also way better for the lawn. As far as the bagger is concerned; I've never seen anything pick up the way this unit does. At first I was a little skeptical about the extra money the Simplicity cost however I now realize this unit is on a different level of it's own and worth every penny. It is a GREAT MOWER and MULCHER.. highly recommend!
The 21" NINJA COMMERCIAL SNAPPER walk behind mower has the best mulching on the market. The commercial grade Briggs and Stratton engine provides an ample amount of power to mulch even the thickest of lawns. If you like to bag your grass in the spring and once in the fall, you can add the bagger and high-lift blade to provide a better bagging system than the dedicated bagging lawn mowers that you can purchase elsewhere. The mower deck has not changed design since the 1970's which provides reassurance that Snapper knows not to change what works. The mower is light weight and stays on the straight path that you put it on. Some mowers tend to wander when going through thick grass but I found this mower to be easily maneuvered to allow for great looking stripes in your grass. I highly recommend this walk behind mower. It is a great mulcher, can bag better than 95% of other mowers and is a fantastic piece of equipment.
Excellent service, Performance equipment goes out of their way to keep my equipment running, on multiple occasions they have dropped everything to address my issues, and their parts department has had most items I've needed in stock same day. If your looking for quality equipment backed by top notch service this is the place to go. I've purchased several pieces of equipment from performance, and have yet to be disappointed. I run a commercial mowing and landscaping company, and put everything to the test daily and Simplicity and Ferris holds up and performs well.
Very helpful staff. Nice selection!
