New machine

Looking to purchase a new machine. I don't have a ton of accounts, as mowing is just supplemental income, but I want a mower that can last. I would love to buy new but it is a little over my budget. I definitely need a rider with over a 48" deck. Any recommendations on a solid mower in an affordable price range? Also how old is too old (years or hours) for a second hand purchase?

why not get a Hydro W/B with a 52" deck and get a sulky for it?

Check out ebay, there are a few 60" Exmark Turf Tracers on there and going for a reasonable price imo. Even any used commercial mower will be thousands. All of this equipment is tons of $$$ and people wonder why the days of 25.00 mows are long gone.
