    How much cash do you have to spend?
    It's a big selection out there.........
    $15,000 can get you there pretty quickly but most aren't interested in those kinds of dollars..............

    Price range is important.

    For about $7900 you could get a 62" Toro Z Master, that would be my suggestion.

    Lesco Has a great ZTR called a ZTWO. Its the same as the Cub TANK. I have a 54 inch deck and 23 horse motor. It works great. It even has a stock stripe roller on it. Mine was under 6 grand. Cub sells there for about 7 grand i think.

    While all of the previous posts contain valid arguments based on personal use you should use a more scientific approach.

    How long do you want to be sitting on a mower?

    How long does it take to mow 8 acres with a 52" mower going 6mph? 8mph? 12mph?

    61"? 72"? gang mower pulled behind a tractor?

    Find the mower that performs within your time constraints.
