new machine, advice appreciated

so im looking for a new machine to replace my current setup. i went to a bunch of local dealers today checking out different makes and models, and came away most impressed as far as quality for the money in a 2011 toro z500 60" deck kohler 27 and a gravely pro-ride 254 54" deck with a kawi 27. any experience with these specific models or thoughts on them is greatly appreciated. it will be used to cut my 5 acres and my in-laws 5 acres, so 10 acres a week.

edit : i can get the toro for 7300 and the gravely for 6800 both after tax

It's been 15 years since I ran Exmark and Toro. Personally I don't care for the new machines. If they still had the earlier set up I may still be running them.

Gravely is a good bang for the buck IMO and the company itself is outstanding even after the purchase.
