New mower for 2011 (suggestions, advice, tips?)

My partner is leaving the business after one season so were selling our Cub Cadet z-force 50". I like the mower but we only have 10 accounts and next season i plan on having 20-30. I want more of a commercial mower thats faster and maybe a wider cut. I'm on a short budget but im good at finding a deal. Im thinking a bad boy or dixie due to the fact that they mow quick and seem to have good reviews. does anyone have any suggestions on a mower size and hp? Im thinking somewhere between 54-60 inches or do you consider that too wide for mainly residential? any tips, suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!
  • Cub Cadet z-force 50"
  • 33" troy bilt walk-behind
  • Homelite trimmer/edger
  • 5x12 tandem axle trailer
  • 1992 Chevy 1500
