    Hustler has a good name in La. and Fl. That should do the trick but I would opt for a larger engine than a 20. A 20 is not enough here for bi-weekly lawns with a 52" deck but it may be there.

    Exmark does well on pasture, however it does not do well on slopes....and mine bogs down quite a bit in wet grass.. I have the 52" with a 27hp
