Ferris Touts Yanmar Diesel Engines for its IS® 2500Z Line-Up

Munnsville, N.Y. (October 27, 2010)—The Ferris IS® 2500Z mid-mount zero-turn mower line-up for model year 2011 will include three models featuring Yanmar 3-cylinder, in-line diesel engines with cast iron blocks.  A 20-hp model with 52” iCD™ cutting system and a 24-hp model with a 61” iCD™ cutting system are available now.  A 24-hp model with 52” iCD™ cutting system will be available in January 2011.

 The patented four-wheel suspension system on the IS® 2500Z dramatically increases operator comforts, mowing speed, quality of cut and productivity.  With a top speed of 10 mph, the operator can mow up to 5 acres per hour (based on 80% efficiency).

 

“Many commercial operators are unaware that they slow down to compensate for rough terrain,” says Bill Shea, vice president of commercial sales for the Briggs & Stratton Yard Power Products Group.  “Protected from the effects of rough terrain, the operator naturally increases his or her speed, taking full advantage of the available machine horsepower.”

 

By absorbing bumps and vibration, the suspension system also helps extend mower life.  Additionally, the mower deck features cast-iron greaseable spindles for longer life.  For more information, visit www.ferrisindustries.com.

 

The Ferris brand is part of the Briggs & Stratton Yard Power Products Group, a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of lawn and garden and turf care through its Ferris®, Snapper Pro®, Simplicity®, Snapper® and Allis-Chalmers® brands.

Ferris Evolution™ Compact Zero-Turn Line-Up Expanded

Munnsville, N.Y. (October 27, 2010) – A compact rider offering superior performance and operator comfort, the Evolution™ quickly revolutionized the compact zero-turn mowing category.  Now, two years after its introduction, the Evolution is offered in five models.

Available from 19- to 27-hp and with 36”, 48” or 52” mowing decks, commercial cutters can now select from the following Evolution models:

 

  • 19-hp Kawasaki with 36” mowing deck
  • 27-hp Kawasaki with 48” mowing deck
  • 20-hp Kawasaki FX with 48” mowing deck
  • 22-hp Kawasaki FX with 52” mowing deck
  • 26-hp Kawasaki FX with 52” mowing deck

           

With a forward speed of up to 10 mph, the Evolution™ can mow up to 5.1 acres per hour (based on 80% efficiency).  And thanks to its overall compact, low stance, it is ideal for mowing in tight places or highly landscaped areas.

           

Featuring exclusive, patent pending suspension technology from Ferris, the Evolution™ places its operator in the most ideal ergonomic position for mowing.  The operator’s back, shoulders and neck are aligned to minimize discomfort and fatigue. The operator's weight is evenly distributed providing longer comfort throughout the day. Integrated suspension technology heightens the riding experience and delivers supreme comfort and performance. 

           

The mower’s controls are easy to use and placed right at the operator’s fingertips.  Importantly, the operator is ideally positioned for getting on-and-off the mower quickly and easily to remove debris from the job site or move on to the next one.
