SCAG Tiger or Ferris I1000 or Hustler Fastrack

Just purchased a little over 3 acre lot. Will be cutting approx 2.75 acres of Florida Bahia type grass. Plan to do a little towing of a lightweight cart. What do y'all think of these choices for the intended usage? Are the models an "apples to apples" comparison? I was thinking of a 19-20 hp with a 48"-52" deck. Anyone heard of / use a Country Clipper? Should I consider it among the above mentioned? Thanks for any/all replies.

The Hustler FasTrak was built with your exact need in mind.
Of the units you list, the FasTrak is the only residential ZTR.
The other units are commercial use units.
The FasTrak gives you more features and at lower price.
Do a search here on LS about the FasTrak and you will see.

Later

Investigate the Scag Tiger Cub 48" deck before you decide. It will be great for your needs, and since it is commercial equipment, you will be able to get more use out of it. The prices are very reasonable. We considered the Country Clipper, but we were told it has some problems, so we decided against it.

You might also consider an Exmark. The model Lazer Z CT is considered a light commercial model. It is supposed to be ideal for homeowners.
