Ferris® Introduces IS®6200

Ferris® Introduces IS®6200: Ferris®  introduces the IS®6200 commercial zero-turn mower that uses the latest EU Stage 5 emission technology in combination with unique mowing technology to provide commercial cutters with superior performance, quality and comfort. The all new IS®6200 has all it needs to impress even the most demanding professional cutter.

Zero Turn mowers have come a long way in 20 years. Nowadays they are bigger and faster and they put more stress on their operators. After 18 years it was time to update our flagship mower, the IS®5100Z. With the development of its successor we kept building our old flagship mower in mind. We used our worldwide facilities to take the trails further. So rather than rest on the many laurels we went full-out bringing it up to date and even beyond. It is a powerhouse evolved directly from the IS®5100Z, adding 41% (!) more engine power with stunning performance and unshakeable endurance that will set the pace for many years to come.

Latest Stage 5 technology in combination with HVO100 synthetic Diesel¹) enables you to reach your climate targets and reduce your Carbon Footprint.

The IS®6200 is powered by a Caterpillar® 48-gross HP, 1699cc Liquid Cooled 3-cylinder EU Stage 5 Diesel engine, featuring a Turbo charger, a Common Rail fuel system and a Diesel Oxygen Catalyst.

Ferris patented IS Independent Suspension® system with adjustable coil-over-shocks at the front wheels of the machine in conjunction with adjustable, (double at the IS®6200) coil-over-shocks at the rear wheels, offering superior operator comfort and increased mowing productivity. The IS Independent Suspension® system utilises four upper and lower control rods and mower-specific shocks designed to eliminate caster chatter and to ensure the casters remain properly oriented throughout the entire range of suspension travel to improve ride and cut quality. This controlled motion results in a smoother ride, more precise tracing of the terrain and an improved cut. The patented suspension system responds to the most unforgiving terrain with refined control and incomparable steering accuracy. It allows the operator maintain ground speed on rough underground, not slow down, taking full advantage of the available horsepower resulting in more covered square meters per hour and lower operational costs.
