IS® 700Z Zero Turn Mowers

Efficient, affordable commercial zero turn for lawn care pros & hardcore homeowners.  

Did we design the IS® 700Z zero turn for the five-day-a-week landscaping pro, or is it the ideal machine for part-time lawn contractors and weekend warriors? Once you see how it eclipses the competition in features, performance and price point, you'll agree it's both.

Our design engineers insisted this versatile, affordable lawn mower would get its cues from Ferris' flagship zero turn mowers the moment they approached the drawing board.

First things first. Our exclusive full rear suspension system and pivoting front axle with shocks up front set the bar where no other brand can reach. Suspension provides a smoother ride and greater control to mow evenly over rough ground faster – with better traction and far less scalping – than a non-suspension mower.

Next up, the iCD Cutting System with long-lasting Marbain® steel blades. We mount them via greaseable aluminum spindles to a rock-steady, heavy duty deck for consistently superior cut quality. We also include a professional lawn striping kit. That's right. We've barely pulled the cover off this nimble rider and already, you have all you need to finish every lawn project with country club quality.

You'll propel the IS 700Z with your choice of powerful engines. Play it conservative with our spirited Briggs & Stratton Commercial Turf Series motor. Or, get maximum power with the awesome performance of the new, American-made1 Vanguard 810cc riding mower engine that cranks out 26 gross horsepower*.

All that muscle is transferred to the wheels by our dual commercial Hydro-Gear®  ZT-3400® transaxle drive system.  It's a truly commercial grade transmission, so it's both reliable for long-term performance and operator serviceable when needed.

We even remembered the creature comforts, like a firm yet forgiving seat with arm rests and a convenient cup holder to stay hydrated acre after sweet acre.

Calling all full-time lawn contractors and weekend freelancers, farmers and discriminating homeowners. The IS 700Z feisty, affordable zero turn lawn mower redefines the sweet spot between capability and cost.

  • iCD™ Cutting System with included striping kit delivers maximum cutting performance and enhanced discharge through the generous deck opening.
  • The IS® 700Z compact zero turn comes with your choice of 52" and 61" wide decks.
  • The commercial zero turn mower line equipped with 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.

  • Comfortable Mower Seats

    The riding mower seat adjusts forward and backward to maximize comfort and features arm rests as well as a retractable seat belt. Combined with Ferris' exclusive suspension-aided ride and low-vibration engine choices, we build the most comfortable riders on the market.

  • Superior Steering

    The IS 700Z'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. We offer a variety of top-quality engines that deliver the right level of power, performance and efficiency for commercial or residential mower applications. Dual, independent commercial Hydro-Gear® ZT-3400® transaxles deliver reliable power and durability.

  • Large Tires

    Ample, 22-inch lawn mower tires meet the turf to provide better traction, capable curb climbing and confident 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

    Generous 5.5 gallon fuel capacity can be monitored via the fuel gauge, conveniently located beside the cup holder.

  • 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.
