Ferris® Introduces Soft Ride Stand-On (SRS™) Z2 Riding Mower

MILWAUKEE (October 21, 2015) – Ferris® introduces the Soft Ride Stand-on (SRS™) Z2 mower, featuring a first-of-its-kind adjustable operator platform for optimum comfort and unprecedented performance.

“The new Ferris SRS Z2 mower is raising the bar for operator comfort,” said Harold Redman, President of Briggs & Stratton’s Turf and Consumer Products Division. “Its patent-pending operator platform with adjustable suspension technology delivers a more comfortable ride by reducing stress on the operator’s body, while its forward and reverse levers and ergonomic thigh pads help to further reduce operator fatigue.”

The SRS Z2 mower offers several features that deliver the kind of heightened productivity and commitment to quality that has become synonymous with the Ferris brand.

With maximum ground speeds up to 10 mph, the SRS Z2 cuts more grass in less time. It’s easy-locking, three-position ground speed control ensures smooth operation in both tight and wide-open green spaces. Complementing the smooth speed of the SRS Z2 is a fan-cooled commercial mower Hydro-Gear® ZT-3400™ transaxle system designed to ensure the mower has enough power to muscle through the toughest lawn conditions.

The SRS Z2 is available with either a 52- or 61-inch iCD™ Cutting System with professional lawn striping kit. The ¼-inch Marbain® steel blades require less sharpening. Customers can select between a Briggs & Stratton Vanguard™ 810cc EFI or Kawasaki® FX801V engine, both backed by a 3-year limited manufacturer’s warranty1.
