Hello and welcome to the board! I am curious and want to ask you what is you absolute top end budget? I think you can do better! I also feel for a few more bucks you could get into a entry level Z, like a BadBoy MZ or Hustler Sport, brand new with a 3 year warranty, these machines are capable of a great cut and built to last a long time. I also think for a bit more you could certainly find a "better" used commercial machine that would be very reliable with a nice cut!
