Munnsville, N.Y. (October 27, 2010) – By offering air-cooled Vanguard BIG BLOCK engines on its IS 2000Z and IS 3100Z mid-mount zero-turn mowers, Ferris is offering its customers the only engine brand with a global 3-year commercial limited warranty.
“Both our IS 2000Z and IS 3100Z product lines have a strong record of performance and reliability,” says Bill Shea, vice president of commercial sales for the Briggs & Stratton Yard Power Products Group. “Combining them with an engine that has the same reputation just makes sense for our customers.”
The IS 2000Z is available with a 30-hp Vanguard BIG BLOCK with a 61” mowing deck; the IS 3100Z features 30- and 32-hp BIG BLOCK units with 61” decks and a 32-hp BIG BLOCK model with a 72” deck.
Briggs & Stratton is committed to leading the industry in warranty support systems. The new Vanguard warranty is backed by the Briggs & Stratton global service network. This network is equipped with a 24-hour parts support system and electronic claims filing to expedite parts delivery and warranty payment.
The Ferris brand is part of the Briggs & Stratton Yard Power Products Group, a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of lawn and garden and turf care through its Ferris®, Snapper Pro®, Simplicity®, Snapper® and Allis-Chalmers® brands.
