Ferris Talks Mower Evolution, Cutting Deck Performance

Bill Bower, director of commercial marketing for Briggs & Stratton's Yard Power Products Group, discusses the uniquely designed Ferris Evolution Mower, which features the Ferris-exclusive iCD Cutting System on its 52' model. Initially introduced in two models, a 19-hp Kawasaki engine with 36' mowing deck or 27-hp Kawasaki engine with 48' deck, the Evolution line-up has grown to include three additional models. There is now a model featuring a 20-hp Kawasaki engine either a 48' or 52' deck and one using a 26-hp Kawasaki engine with 52' cutting 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.
