IS® 2100Z Zero Turn Mowers

Get the smoothest ride on our fuel-efficient, zero turn mower built for rough terrain.

Spend one day in the saddle of our IS®2100Z commercial riding mower and you'll quickly understand why. When you encounter bumpy terrain, you know the drill with other brands - slow down to a crawl, or become a human jackhammer as you bounce up and down in your seat.

Not so with Ferris' patented suspension technology.The IS 2100Z zero turn lawn mower boasts full rear suspension and independent suspension in front. As the forward wheels of the mower track over those unexpected bumps and depressions , the adjustable coil-over-shock system restores control to the operator. You'll stay seated and steer with greater confidence.As an added benefit, the reduced stress makes this a zero turn mower that lasts longer.

Combined with Ferris'iCD engineering under the mower deck, the IS2100Z delivers consistently accurate cutting performance in diverse conditions without the need to slow down. The cutting deck is mounted independently of the suspension system, barely affected by hills and holes, so you spend more time traveling at high ground speeds without scalping the expertly manicured turf under your care.

At the heart of these brawny lawn mowers is our dual commercial Hydro-Gear®  ZT-4400® transaxle system, designed to endure even the most merciless day on the job. You'll pair it with your choice of four impressive engine options from Kawasaki®, Kohler® and Vanguard. Any one of them will deliver all the reliable, get-up-and-go a professional landscaper could want.

If fuel economy is your hot button, the Vanguard810cc EFI delivers uncommon efficiency without sacrificing output.Leading the industry in fuel efficiency,this beefy new, American-made1 V-twin unleashes 28 gross horsepower* while reducing fuel consumption by up to 25 percent3. And for those with an insatiable appetite for performance, the Vanguard 32-gross HP V-Twin BIG BLOCK unleashes incomparable power for a riding mower this size, with low vibration and noise cancellation technology.

The IS 2100Z is an aggressive zero turn mower built to satisfy an eager work attitude, whether you're a full-time commercial landscaper or a discriminating homeowner looking for all you could ever need.

  • iCD™ Cutting System with included striping kit delivers maximum cutting performance and enhanced discharge through the generous deck opening. The IS 2100Z comes with your choice of 52" and 61" wide decks.
  • The commercial zero turn mower line equipped with adjustable front and rear suspension, delivering a refined ride and a more consistent cut at higher traveling speeds
  • Protected by our 2+2 year limited warranty.2

Features
  • Experience more refined riding mower comfort and better traction. Our exclusive suspension system consists of rear coil-over-shocks and front independent adjustable coil-over-shocks. All four shocks are user adjustable to tune the suspension to your personal comfort level. Mow over rough ground without slowing down as you typically must on a non-suspension mower – with less scalping, making you more productive with each passing day.

  • Upgraded Comfort

    Our comfort-enhanced lawn mower seat provides extended comfort for all-day use. Adjustable arm rests tilt up and down to match your riding style, with convenient access to the cup holder. Combined with Ferris' exclusive suspension-aided ride and low-vibration engine choices, we build the most comfortable commercial riding mowers on the market.

  • Superior Steering

    The IS 2100Z's steering handles rival the competition's. We use solid steel handle bars. Most other manufacturers settle for steel tubes, which may bend or loosen over time. Ferris' steering is controlled by rods connected to the hydraulics, preferred over cable systems that stretch out over time and are affected by debris. Pillow block bearings on the control mounts make for longer lasting, smooth moving controls with improved precision where needed. You literally feel the difference, as you're not fighting against unexpected push-back that you may experience on other riders. Our handle bars also adjust up and down as well as in and out to enhance rider comfort.

  • Power and Performance

    With Ferris, count on a no-compromise drive train. Dual, independent commercial Hydro-Gear® ZT-4400® transaxles deliver unmatched power and durability. We offer a variety of top-quality hydrostatic lawn mower engines that deliver the right level of power, performance and efficiency for any commercial application.

  • Consider the Fuel Efficient Engine

    The Vanguard™ 810cc EFI delivers increased displacement, power and torque – for more grass cutting capability than the competition. Up to 25% fuel savings3 and dyno-proven results. Technician-friendly diagnostics: Schroeder valve for fuel pressure check. Free software, slewing controls and ECU flashing. No more blink codes with Tiny Scan.

  • Larger Mower Tires

    New for this year, we upgraded the rear tires to 24 inches, providing better traction, enhanced curb climbing and improved stability around turns and along slopes.

  • 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 – extend belt life, reduce wear on bearings and save on maintenance.

  • Max Fuel Capacity to Mow Longer

    This riding mower comes equipped with two 5.5-gallon fuel tanks, one on each side, for total capacity of 11 gallons. Tanks have wide-mouth filler openings to prevent spilling.

  • Superior Cut Quality

    Improved airflow results in superior cut quality from the iCD™ Cutting System. Fine tune your cut height in 1/4" increments from 1.75 to 5 inches without leaving your seat. The foot-operated deck lift features an adjustable pedal for tall or short operators. Our improved mower deck features deluxe, greaseable cast-iron (61" model) or greaseable aluminum (52" model) spindles. We include a commercial grade lawn striping kit for that professionally finished look.

  • Fast, Easy Cleaning

    The seat and seat mount rock forward, making it easy to blow debris out the rear of the mower with a leaf blower. The center-mounted floor pan comes off with the twist of a knob to clear off the top of the deck and gain access to the grease fitting on the center spindle should lubrication be necessary.
