We'll assume that your intention is to continue to expand the hours you cut. Working with that, a commercial grade mower (that you can get parts and service for locally...CRITICAL) will allow you to leverage your machine far more effectively with a longer service life, better quality of cut (most of the time), more power for situations like wet or extremely long grass, etc.

You'll find those machines designed for residential use to have a very short life before things like cracked frames and decks, worn out bearings and drive systems end up making the machine far more costly to own for commercial type hours.

Your immediate comparison will probably involve fatigue and productivity, but don't discount cost of ownership anytime you evaluate equipment.
