For work comparable to what you are describing I use a 52" Scag Turf Tiger with the 27HP Kohler engine. Over rough terrain I cover about 2 acres/hour. The machine could handle faster, but my back starts complaining even though it has an excellent seat. Much of what I mow is locally called guinea grass--a thick, coarse, aggressive weed. With 600 hours on the machine the only real problem it has given me was the electric clutch failed at about 550 hours. The frame is as rugged as you are likely to find and handles rough terrain well. Before getting the Scag I used a 30 HP Kubota B-7800 tractor. Certainly it ultimately is sturdier, but takes at least 50% longer to mow the area.
