Best Mower for the money

OK guys, what would your answer to this one be.......

Best mower for a homeowner with 3+ acres to mow, and must be in the $7,000 range or less. Would want 52" or 60". ALL major dealers are within her area.

Let's hear your recommendations and prices.

Ferris 1000 (no IS) with 61 inch deck...can do for $6100 (I have 2 of them). That's 9 bills less than the 7 grand it has to be around.
