New Ferris Launch At SALTEX: The team that brings you Ferris zero turn mowers in the UK are delighted to confirm the launch of an all new commercial mower from Ferris at the upcoming SALTEX exhibition.
The ISX®800Z is powered by a Briggs & Stratton Commercial Turf™ 27-gross HP, 810cc VTwin petrol engine, featuring a commercial warranty of 3 years. Packed full of premium features, the ISX®800Z boasts Ferris’ patented suspension technology, iCD™ cutting deck technology, heavy-duty Hydro-Gear® drive system, an engine purpose built for a zero-turn application and mowing speeds up to 16 km/h. With a compact size, the ISX®800Z can easily tackle tight places, providing maximum manoeuvrability and productivity.
Taking owners into the future, the Ferris suspension has been upgraded for an even better mowing experience, featured on the ISX®800Z. Not only does this mower incorporate adjustable coil-over-shocks at the rear wheels, it also boasts next generation independent suspension at the front using a double wishbone system. This offers superior operator comfort and increased mowing productivity, with the deck following the contours of even the most challenging terrain with refined control and incomparable steering accuracy.
This allows the operator to maintain ground speed on rough turf, not slowing down, and instead taking full advantage of the available horsepower resulting in more covered square meters per hour and lower operational costs.
On top of that, all Ferris zero-turn mowers have no limitations on the daily allowable exposure regarding hand/arm and whole-body vibrations (HAV’s and WBV’s), including the ISX®800Z.
The ISX®800Z is a commercial workhorse offering superior durability and is built with industry-leading commercial-grade components. Dual commercial Hydro-Gear® ZT-3400 transaxles deliver unmatched power and durability. The 132cm rear discharge mower deck with iCD™ technology features a factory fitted mulching insert and cast-iron spindle housings; accommodating double-row industrial angular-contact bearings. An all new double belt mower drive system is covered by 3 years (max.300 hours) warranty.
Other features include large 23” traction wheels at the rear, a premium high-back adjustable seat with padded arm rests, large 21 litre fuel tank capacity and a foldable ROPS system.
Clive Carter, T H WHITE Machinery Imports Business Manager, is excited about the opportunities this new model presents, commenting, “this is an exciting step for Ferris, with next generation suspension technology that is unrivalled in the market, as well as all the usual benefits buyers can expect. We’re looking forward to showcasing the ISX®800Z at SALTEX and providing free demonstrations for those who are interested in seeing it in action.”
