Although Ferris offers several ZTRs, I will give an overview of their ZTRs. Keep in mind, that some of their ZTRs do differ quite a bit.

Cut: Rating A-

This A- rating is based on their new ICD deck, which is a huge improvement over their old deck. This new deck is very similar to Scag’s Velocity deck. I would only recommend getting a Ferris with their new ICD deck.

Durability: Rating B+

This is a tough, well built ZTR. However, with the suspension, there are more moving parts. That could mean more to replace and maintain.

Handling and Balance: Rating A-

Ferris ZTRs handle very well. I give them a lot of credit for using suspension. Through the years, the suspension has gotten better and better.

Available Accessories: Rating B+

Ferris has a good selection of accessories. I would like to see them improve their mulch system just a bit.

Maintenance and Ingenuity: Rating A

Ferris is a very progressive company. They get an A because they are the only company that offers a full blown suspension system.
