FW25: The compact and manoeuvrable walk-behind

The Ferris FW25 dual hydrostatic walk behind mower was built from the ground up offering high performance and strong build quality. It meets the demands of professional mowing crews by providing a smooth and user friendly operation. The FW25 also boasts an impressive 18.5 Kawasaki engine adding improved reliability and performance. The 36″ rear discharge deck is small enough to work nimbly in confined spaces and compact enough to transport easily.

This model is a revamp of the already popular FW35, featuring an upgraded cruise control and independent steering system. This walk-behind mower provides easier deck levelling to allow easy access to grease points and more durable water points for reduced maintenance.

I bought this mower in February this year and have 40 hours on it, I mow 10 residential and one apartment complex and this versatile mower cuts great and has power to spare which really helps on overgrown grass.

I have used two other walk behinds and several sit on ZTR’s and this is by far the best walk behind.

I love the 36 inch Ferris.

I can get it into most back yards. It hugs hills. Easy to maintain.

You can lift the front eve and put blocks under for blade change. Love that. Easy to change oil. Like others the oil filter could go some where else but ok.

I can do yards with less fatigue with big back tyres. I’m so glad i got a Ferris.

I started a small lawn care company and bought this due to recommendations from people in the business that said Ferris makes good products.

This mower cuts well and is easy to get used to.

I will probably sell this or trade it in for a zero turn within the next year or two. This is a great piece to add to a starting or growing business.
