• Cruise Control to Set Speed: Adjust the mower's speed without removing your hands from the control handles with the improved, ready-access cruise control bar. Simply press forward to increase speed and pull back a slow down. A convenient speed indicator is placed within easy view on the control panel.

• Easier-to-Use Controls: The CC™ Centralized Control lawn mower handle design places the operator's hands in the ideal position to access all in-demand controls. Ergonomic operator presence, steering and reverse levers on both handles operate with a light touch to reduce operator fatigue. Easily adjust control tensions to fine tune for different operating conditions.

• Keeps the Engine Running: Need to walk away from the mower to move an obstacle or debris? The new PTO switch allows the operator to stop the mower blades quickly and easily. While mowing, simply step on the centralized foot activated neutral pedals or pull back on the cruise control bar to place in neutral. Then, remove your hands from the controls. The blades will stop while the engine continues to run. Restarting the blades is just as easy. Place your hand on the controls, pull up the PTO switch and set your speed with the cruise control bar.

• Easy-Access Neutral Position: New dual access neutral pedals take the guesswork out of finding neutral, simplifying operation and saving time. The operator can use either foot to put the mower in neutral. The neutral position is clearly identified on the speed indicator on the dash.

• Well Built, Well Protected: Thick, 1/4" steel guards protect the front deck mower's transmission when going over curbs or rolling on and off a trailer - the type of rough handling that occurs daily under commercial use and can render lesser mowers inoperable. The design also reduces build up of debris to improve air flow and allow for access to the filter for maintenance.

• Robust Deck Mounting: The deck mounting system provides easier deck leveling, improved flexibility over terrain, easy-access grease points and more durable wear points for reduced maintenance.

• Longer Belt Life: The parts that wear out the soonest don't have to go so soon. The Ferris-engineered deck drive belt system and larger pulleys provide gentler belt tension, which - combined with our unique debris shield - extends belt life and reduces wear on bearings.

• Easy Reach Parking Break: We located the parking brake handle conveniently in front of the control panel, providing instant access with minimal operator effort to reach and engage.

• Solid Construction: All Ferris walk behind mowers are ruggedly built nose to tail to withstand daily commercial-duty operation and transport. Robust 1/4" steel engine deck construction stands the test of time.

• Easy to Secure: Dedicated tie-down points located in the front and the rear makes trailering this commercial lawn mower between jobs secure and easy.

• Hydro-Gear® ZT-3400™ Transaxles: Dual commercial grade transaxles with remote oil coolers that reduce oil temperature by as much as 25% and feature 1.125" tapered axle, forged steel bull gear and steel cut pinion gear for enhanced performance in commercial applications.

• Added Power and Performance: Powered by a 28 hp* Vanguard® 810 EFI Engine with Oil Guard™, you will get a 500-hour oil change interval that can reduce maintenance time and costs by 60%**. (Select models)

• Gas Tank Guard: Additional protection has been added to protect the gas tank from obstacles and debris.

• Enhanced Foot Pedal Support: Upgraded with dual solid-steel return-to-neutral foot pedals for better user support.

• New Spindle Access: We listened closely to our commercial users when considering the enhancements on our redesigned mower deck. The new, improved deck provides a new spindle easy-access slot for faster greasing and accessibility.

• Ergonomic Parking Break: We modified and added an angles parking brake that is pulled into the frame to prevent snagging or bending. This now provides instant access with minimal operator effort to each and engage.

• Enhanced Muffler Guard: Enhanced muffler guard has been added to protect the O2 sensor on the EFI Oil Guard models.
