Hilly lawn with trees, whats the right equipment

I have a 2.5-acre lawn with an average slope of 8 degrees and 72 trees to cut around. One smaller section of lawn has a 17-degree slope and another has an 11-degree slope. I am not sure what type of mower to get, zero-turn, tractor or commercial grade walk behind. I would like to spend $3-5k on the unit. I am not planning on using the mower for anything other than cutting grass. Please recommend a type of mower and manufacture/model if you can.

You Can Try a Full Turf tracer with a sulky For a Little Over 5 23 Kohler 52 Or 60" Ultracut deck same As The Lazers.

Picture of my lawn

Walking for 1.5-2 hours once or twice each week doesn't sound like fun.

If possible I would prefer a machine to ride on. Is there a ride on mower that is good on hills?

The Convertible Mower You can walk OR Ride In 10 Secounds. But a Lazer will do Your Yard Just fine!

The Hustler Z or Super Z will make quick work of your property.
I will put the Hustler against any other machine on the market for hill handling, it is awesome !!!
Here is a pic of the mower......and the catchers that are available, if you need to pick up all those leaves.....
The first pic is of the unit handling a hill with ease.
The second pic is of the unit with the dump from the seat catcher we have made for 11 years (very proven product)
And the 3rd pic is of the new 3 bag unit if you need to bag or put your leaves in a truck.
.

E-mail me @ hustlerturfequipment@msn.com if you have any questions.
