    I am in the market for a commercial zero turn, I will be mowing a 4 acre residential yard, with a few hills, I will also be mowing 2 10 acre fields twice a month. So I want something in the 50-60"" range. I would prefer a diesel, and one the stripes nice. TIA!

    What are you willing to spend? You say the best, but most aren't willing to spend that for a homeowner.

    I'd call the best the JD 997, if diesel is a plus.

    You can get a used CAT deisel Ferris IS3200D for around $8K with 1700 on the clock. For CAT the rings have just gotten set at 1700! For homeowner use, it'll last you 2-3 lifetimes. Plus you can dial in your own personal suspension settings. No collapsed spinal column most brands after a few hours in the saddle.

    Yeah, that's the one. It's a bit of a beast for homeowner use but if a beast is what you're looking for...there's your animal. They quit using the CAT engines and strictly use Yanmars now. So I'm happy with mine. The 5100 is pretty hefty and will leave plenty of turfing until you get skilled in thurning.
    It'll cut any grass you put in front of it and at speed.
    Don't get me wrong, now. There's nothing wrong with grasshoppers. They're awesome machines, with a fine pedigree. If you want a cush ride you can opt for their out-front models but they're a little pricey. As are the Ferris machines.
    Either would be a good choice.

    Isn’t that like jumbo shrimp?

    Preferably new, but not opposed to a quality used machine.
