Huffmans farm store chain in Aledo Illinois has..or had one on their floor. Not a bad looking mower and the price wasnt too bad either.

I saw these a year ago at one of our local "independent" farm supply stores. They don't resemble the Ferris units much as all of the plastic body panels are unique to the Stihl units. Before the announcement of the "discontinuance" of Simplicity, a number of dealers were ready to call it quits, over Briggs supplying these units to Stihl and not fulfilling the dealers orders for Simplicity/Snapper Pro, etc.

B&S has always allowed Ferris to run its own business without big brother interference. Whereas, obviously not the case with Simplicity. Also, hearing rumors there have been interest in others buying Simplicity.
