    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.

    John

    Oh and the NEW tiger cub is going to be called the WILD CAT. seems the first tiger cub needed to be toughened up.

    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.
