I currently have a jd x570 which runs fine, however my yard is very bumpy and I have a bad back. I was thinking of getting something like a ferris that suppose to smooth out the bumps. Do they actually do this ? Or a suggestion on somehow to get a smoother ride. Or ak different mower, Maybe replacing the seat with a suspension type seat ? Being old is not fun !

Take a serious look at the Toro Z-turns with the My-Ride system. Definitely makes a big difference.

Simplicity and Ferris ( both owned by Briggs) both have units with suspensions. You can adjust them to 5-different levels from a stiffer ride to a softer ride. I had a X590 that I loved but had to eventually trade it for a softer ride. The suspension makes a big difference. A suspension seat will also smooth out the ride and should be a good option as well.
