What brands are the other two? Its logistically easier to keep parts for one or two mowers over all different brands. What's your favorite of the other two? I would stick with the brand I already know and like.

Sounds like Toro might be your best bet. Kubota builds an awesome machine, but I'm not sure if they make a sub 10k model.

There's a fairly large LCO that uses a Kobota Z and on several occasions I just sat to watch this particular machine in action cuz it was one of the their biggest models and to be honest, I wasn't impressed at all with cutting abilities because it literally clumped every where and this is on weekly cuts. I'd look at the JD Z with the 7 iron deck.
