Ferris®  Introduces The F800X Series Zero-Turn Mower

Milwaukee,WI (November 12, 2012) — The F800X, a new rugged out-front commercial zero-turn, meets the needs of customers who are looking for a versatile mower that can be used in conjunction with multiple attachments for increased productivity.  The F800X features your choice of gasoline, 31 gross hp* Vanguard, or diesel, 30 gross hp^ Yanmar, engine options. The F800X is available with a 61” or 72” iCD™ Cutting System with striping kit.

The dual hydrostatic system provides smooth, reliable operation.  Each drive wheel is individually powered by a fan cooled pump and wheel motor.  The pivoting rear axle in conjunction with the floating front frame allows the F800X to follow the contours of the landscape for a precise manicured finish. 

The new easy-to-use electric deck lift takes the effort out of adjusting cutting height from 1.5” – 5” in .25” increments. The electric lift also makes blade maintenance a snap. The mower deck features cast-iron greaseable spindles for longer useable life.  The discharge chute is made from recycled rubber that flexes when it comes in contact with objects.

Rugged twin 6-gallon fuel tanks, with extra-large filler neck, feature a cup holder, large storage compartment, ergonomically designed control panel and hour meter.  The F800X comes standard with a fully-adjustable suspension seat for added comfort.
