Indiana newbie

I am needing some disparate help here . I am a first time ZTR buyer and trying to figure out a few questions. A little intro.... I am looking at something to mow about 4-5 acres (which is soon to be the size of my residential property) and I am again located in Indiana.

1. I have been told to go with a commercial grade mower due to the size of the property...thoughts? Or could I get away with a upper end residential mower?

2. Brands I have been looking at scag, hustler, ferris, JD ( not a 100% sure on that one). Ah others i should consider?

3. If I had to pick two of my top concerns I would say its cut & comfort. I have some what bad back from to many sports.

Instead of the scag cheetah....go with the scag freedom?
Instead of the hustler super z... Go with the turf x one?

Are these options since this is not my full time job...or for durability should I pay more up front and have no worries? However, there is a big difference in price.

Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.
