He wasn’t familiar with Ferris® mowers, but demoed a new Ferris ISX™ 3300 zero-turn mower powered by a Vanguard engine at Wilkinson Supply, his local dealer. Wheeler kept it for a few days and tested it at the school.
“I fell in love with it,” Wheeler says. “It was amazing, how fast it was. It did an awesome job cutting.”
The powerful engine impressed Wheeler on first use.
“We picked an area of the school that was just a straight shot and engaged the blade. It felt like a car, how fast I was going, and it cut the grass going full speed,” Wheeler says. “The grass was cut perfectly.”
