The 500S Zero Turn Mower is the latest addition to Ferris Mowers’ robust line of commercial zero turns and other commercial lawn care equipment.
Available in 48-, 52- and 61-inch mowing deck configurations and with Briggs & Stratton Commercial Series or Kawasaki engines, the 500S comes equipped with the Ferris exclusive pivoting front axle and coil-over shocks on each wheel. As a result, states Ferris, uneven terrain is no problem for the operator or the unit, which can reach ground speeds of up to eight miles per hour without sacrificing cut quality.
“Productivity is the name of the game for commercial landscapers, and every Ferris unit is built with that in mind, including the new 500S,” says Kody Van Sistine, Ferris brand manager. “The patented Ferris suspension, the Briggs & Stratton Commercial Series engine, and even the extras like the LED headlight and premium mid-back seat all contribute to productivity.”
Other features of the 500S include:
- A fabricated 10-gauge steel mowing deck for reliable cutting performance in a variety of conditions;
- Dual commercial transaxles with 7-in. cooling fans to repel debris and provide consistent power;
- 22-inch rear-drive tires and large front casters to ensure dependable traction in various conditions; and
- A foot-operated deck lift that quickly changes cut height in 1⁄4-in. increments with an adjustable pedal.
The 500S Zero Turn mower starts at $5,799 and will be available through the Ferris dealer network starting this fall, with a full release in spring 2022.
