Tractor recommendation

I need some recommendations on a lawn tractor to cut my flat 5 acre yard. Zero turn would be nice but not a necessity. What size should I be thinking about? 48"? 60"?

What would the best bang for my buck be if I'm only concerned about a homeowner mower?

My other option is that if I bought a commercial model I may actively look to pick up a few lawns to suppliment my income.

Recomendations?

I used a Troybilt 25HP, 50" deck to mow 3.5 acres for two years - it was nearly worn out. I switched to a Kubota BX22 and it has run like a champ for the past four years. Two years ago I got a Kubota ZD25 which cut my mowing time in half. I'd vote for a commercial piece of equipment if you're planning on staying more than a couple of years.

I agree with Texsun, go commercial if you can. My property is a total of ten acres of which I mow 3.5 acres weekly and I have a Gravely Walk behind for mowing. For the field I have an old 9n Ford tractor with a brush hog.
