Help with ZTR for 6 acres

I am in the market for a new ZTR this year. I have three dealers within 25 miles of me. The choices are Toro, Hustler and Deere. Due to the amount of grass, I want to go with a commercial mower. I am looking at the following

Toro Z Master 2000 w/ 60" deck
Hustler X One I w/ 60" deck
I haven't really checked out Deere yet as I don't see many of the commercial folks using them around here.

Of the two listed (Toro vs Hustler), what are the advantages of each? Price is about the same. I like the fact that Hustler is made in USA, but I like the looks of the Toro a little better.

Some of what I cut is a little on the bumpy side (using it around the farm).

Please offer your suggestions on these mowers. Thanks in advance!

For 6 acres I would use a toro 6000 for the grounds Speed and also it's stronger for rough terrain and the resale value is way better

I looked at a Deere Z915B this morning and a Z930M. They look like really well built machines. Now I am more confused..... Any thoughts on those?
