The life of any Ferris mower depends on many different things. To actually put a number on it is just about impossible. The maintenance, hours of operation, environmental conditions during use, and how you use your Ferris mower are just a few things that will effect the life of any Ferris mower. We have customers that are still operating some of our original mowers from the mid 80’s. Then you will find some of our newer mowers that look like they have been through a war that are only a few years old. As with any product, if you use it as intended and properly maintain it, it should provide you with reliability and performance for many years.
