Advice on a comercial ZTR for my residence.

I have about 5 acres of most slopes and hills and some steep. With what's around here, I have narrowed it down to Cub Cadet Tank SZ, Ferris 3100, and have JD and Kubota. The real differences to me are the Tank SZ steering and the Ferris suspension. I can run the hills and slopes on a garden tractor with a good lean, but went through a lot of belt drive mowers and now its time to buck up. I think I want EFI, I know I'm getting 60".

I keep coming back to the Tank for some reason, seems like a good concept. My land is a little rough.

I've been mulling this over far to long and need to buy now and mow my grass.

Any input would be great and really appreciated!!!

I'm not a pro, but looking to purchase a ZTR myself. Everyone I have looked at basically says they aren't for steep slopes. Not sure what you consider "steep". Most say anything more than 15 degrees and you shouldn't use their equipment.
