Ferris introduces 400S Light-Duty Commercial Zero Turn Mower

13th October 2017— If you are looking for the best value in compact zero-turn mower, look no further than the Ferris 400S. Featuring our patented suspension technology, heavy-duty Hydro-Gear® Commercial ZT-3100® Drive System and speeds up to 13 km/h, this mower will give you all you’re looking for and more. The 400S is capable of tackling tight places, providing maximum maneuverability and productivity.

Starting with the patented suspension system with adjustable coil-over-shocks at the rear wheels and a motion dampening, fabricated pivoting axle with shock absorbers at the front, offering superior operator comfort and increased mowing productivity. The patented suspension system responds to the most unforgiving terrain with refined control and incomparable steering accuracy. It allows the operator to 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. On top of that, a Ferris zero-turn mower has no limitations on the daily allowable exposure in regards to hand/arm and whole-body vibrations. (HAV’s and WBV’s).

Powered by a Briggs & Stratton® Commercial Series™ V-twin petrol engine (23 Gross HP per SAE J1940), the power source runs quiet, smoothly, cost efficient and especially clean, thanks to the purpose designed, 5 Step Cyclonic Air Filtration which allows a 250 hours air filter change. The engine is backed with a 2 years commercial warranty.

The all new (patent pending) all-in-one mower deck hosts a unique versatility and sets the 400S zero-turn mower apart from the competition. The fabricated mower deck with a cutting width of 122 cm (48”) addresses multiple geographical, cultural and traditional differences across Europe when it comes down to keeping tall grass short.

Multitasking is now literally at your fingertips: Rear discharging, side discharging and mulching are now coming as an integrated standard! Being modest at the same time; the all-in-1 mower deck even offers 2 different modes of mulching.

Other features include a foot operated mower deck lift, a premium high-back adjustable seat with padded arm rests, large, rotational molded 21 liter fuel tank, large 20×10.00-10 drive tires for superb traction and a fabricated tubular steel bumper to protect the engine compartment.

Summarizing the 400S with its unique multi-configurable “All-in-one” Triple Mowing Technology, addresses all European customer needs and offers a single solution which is customizable to specific operator preferences. No matter the grass and soil varieties, climate differences or preferred cutting and discharge methods.
