The Ferris 500S zero-turn mower is designed to fill a need for those landscape professionals looking for a feature-packed zero-turn that not only delivers efficiency and performance, but does so at a great value.
“Productivity is the name of the game…and every Ferris unit is built with that in mind, including the new 500S,” said Kody Van Sistine, Ferris brand manager. “The patented Ferris suspension, the Briggs & Stratton Commercial Series engine, and even the extras like the LED headlight and premium mid-back seat all contribute to productivity.”
The 500S comes equipped with the Ferris exclusive pivoting front axle and coil-over shocks on each wheel so that uneven terrain is no problem for the operator or the unit, which can reach ground speeds of up to eight miles per hour without sacrificing the cut quality. The unit will be available in 48-, 52-, and 61-inch mowing deck configurations with Briggs & Stratton Commercial Series or Kawasaki®- engines.
Other features of the 500S include:
- A fabricated 10-gauge steel mowing deck.
- Dual commercial transaxles with 7-inch cooling fans to repel debris and provide consistent power.
- 22-inch rear-drive tires and large front casters.
- A foot-operated deck lift that quickly changes cut height in 1⁄4-inch increments with an adjustable pedal.
