Glad to hear you like the Toro. How is the ride? Does the big deck scalp at all? I am in a similar situation with a horse farm and six acres to mow, possibly more, if I use on pastures. I have a 72 inch finish mower on my Yanmar tractor and a husky 52 garden tractor now. Taking to much time. I am looking at the 6000 Toro 72 with bb kohler efi. With equine savings, 10600. Should I go for it?
