Best mower for high end residential

Just got 12 new yearly contracts on some high end properties, what size and kind of mower do you recommend? Prefer zero turn but maybe a stander all yards are less than 1 acre.

Take a look at one of Deere's new Wright painted green standers. There are a few other small differences betwen them and a Wright, but they are close. Also, take a close look at the Gravely Pro Stance. They are excellent machines and they leave a top notch cut.

Hard to beat a Walker for smaller high end yards. On the other hand a good walk behind with an accelerator catcher will also yield great results and ultimately be the most versatile .
