SnapperPro, Ferris or Scag?

I'm looking to purchase my first ZTR. I cut approximately 5 acres and I'm looking to replace a Super A with Woods L59 belly mower with a ZTR. 4 acres are fescue with 1 acre zoysia. It currently takes at least 5 hours to mow.

The local Scag and Ferris/SnapperPro dealers are recommending the following:

SnapperPro S200xt 61" cutting width with 32-hp Vanguard BIG BLOCK - $7999
Ferris IS 2000Z 52" cutting width with 26-hp Kawasaki V-Twin engine - $7454
Ferris IS 1500Z 52" cutting width with 26-hp Kawasaki V-Twin engine - $7499
Scag Wildcat 52" cutting width with 26-hp Kawasaki - Liquid-Cooled - $7999
Scag Tiger Cat 61" cutting width with 27-hp Kohler Command & SS - $8795
Scag Turf Tiger 61" cutting width with 27" Kohler Command - $9995

The Ferris/SnapperPro dealer said the SnapperPro is made with Ferris part but without the suspension system. And the issues with the Vanguard engines and the fuel pumps had been resolved. The dealer also said the Ferris IS 1500Z is made with better pumps than the IS 2000Z.

The forums here indicate the Scag Wildcat is being phased out.

Please provide opinions on the better product and pricing from experience.
