Ferris Mowers has taken its iCD cutting system and upgraded it for better efficiency and cut quality. The new iCD+ cutting system, launched at Equip Exposition, will be available on Ferris units this fall. The new system will be available on the Ferris ISX 800, ISX2200, ISX3300 and ISX6200 zero-turns, as well as the Ferris Z2 and Z3X stand-on units.
The system includes a new baffle design and increased blade overlap, which creates more vacuum, pulling the grass up for an improved cut. In addition, a wider exit chute reduces the grass buildup that causes mowers to bog down. The iCD+ system comes in both 72- and 60-inch deck sizes with plans to expand to smaller deck sizes next year.
The new offering also adds to the durability of the mower with a reinforced rounded trim edge that resists cracks and deflects impact. The iCD+ system also introduces an anti-scalp wheel that is attached with a bracket, instead of being welded on, making it easy to replace if damaged.
“The improvements to the iCD system will serve to enhance both the cut and the operator experience,” said Christin Wam, senior director of marketing, Briggs & Stratton.
