    New homeowner looking to buy a riding lawn tractor for 3+ acres of flat land in Southwestern Connecticut.

    Budget is $3K to $4K.

    Key features are mulching, speed, 48" minimum deck, durability/long-lasting and ease of use.

    Please advise brand, model and any good dealers in my region. THX

    If you scroll down to the Homeowners Assistance Forum you'll find quite a bit of advice on this topic. At that price range, you'd probably be looking at a used commercial unit. If there's a dealer near you ( the JAZee ($4k+) would be one to consider. It mulches well, 8mph max, very durable zero turn with a flip-up deck for easy maintenance. The single joystick control is also easy to use.
    If you stick with a riding tractor, the top-rated (Consumer Reports) JD L110 (42" deck) or L130 would be good choices; the JD LX series would be better still, if within your budget. Good luck!
