Best Commercial ZTR Mower for Hilly Terrain & Why?

I am looking for advice on what is the best commercial ztr mower for hilly terrain. Its deck needs to swivel in order to reduce scalping. In addition, it needs to be able to pull a fully loaded Trac Vac model 880. Quality construction, low and easy maintenance, and good warranties are important.

Please give me an idea of price for the mower in question.

Thank you!

I'm gonna suggest looking into the toro commercial zturns. They're built like a tank and I believe you can get it around 8000

My vote is for Ferris. My 3100 has a 32HP Vanguard and it definately wouldn't have a problem pulling it. It does fine on hills alone, but I'd be nervous with a Trac Vac behind it, or any other ZTR for that matter.
