Ferris debuts FB1000 Hurricane

MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Ferris, a brand of Briggs & Stratton, is adding to its line of stand-on blowers with a new compact offering, the FB1000 Hurricane.

While the 35.5” overall width of the FB1000 is compact, it does not sacrifice power. Its Vanguard V-Twin engine delivers 18hp* of power. Coupled with a large horizontal impeller, the stand-on blower can provide 3500 CFM and 150+mph of hands-free debris cleaning power at ground speeds of up to eight mph.

“Landscapers have told us that they needed a stand-on blower with a smaller footprint for some jobs, and the FB1000 delivers,” said Kody Van Sistine, Ferris brand manager. “It’s a perfect addition to any growing lawn care or groundskeeping fleet and is packed with features to drive productivity and ensure operator comfort.”

Other features of the FB1000 include:

●       Patented foot-driven airflow direction control allows operators to keep their hands on the operating controls and maintain productivity.

●       A fold-up operator platform is isolated from bumps through polymer platform bumpers making for a more comfortable operating experience.

●       The 20 x 8-8 drive tires optimize stability and traction, while the flat-free front caster tires deliver reliable performance on all types of terrain.

●       Ergonomic steering controls and simple choke and throttle controls, plus a key-operated start, make the FB1000 intuitive to operate.

The FB1000 Hurricane is available through local Ferris Dealers starting this month with an MSRP of just over $9,000. It joins Ferris Mowers’ two other larger stand-on blowers in the Hurricane line, the FB2000 and FB3000, as well as a complete line of spreader/sprayers and commercial lawnmowers.
