Looks like I need to increase my budget.
It will be well worth it in the long run. 6 years ago I bought a Troybilt 50 in mower for around the same amount you were originally looking to pay. Cut 2 acres with it. Now I am looking for a new mower, but this time I am getting something that is going to last not to mention cut down my 3 hours of mowing.
Make sure you get something with a fabricated deck. My stamped deck has about had it plus its rusting pretty bad. Don't get me wrong the mower has had minimal issues but its getting tired and I am getting tired of it.
