its gonna take a lonnnnggggg time to wear out that scag or any commercial mower with your situation!!! the exmark will probably be a great mower, but if its rough your going to be replacing parts whereas that scag is probably one of the most heavy duty mowers on the market. replacing parts on that scag will be extremely minimal with that few acres.
However if it is very rough land, the scags ride rougher than any mower ive ever been on i guess because they are so freakin heavy!!!
