Ellibri.... I cut my 2+ acres with an Exmark 48TTHP. I also have a JD 2305 w/a 62C mower. If I could have only one piece of equipment hands down it would be the JD if for no other reason you can just do more with it. The FEL is like a wheel barrow you don't have to push around. I have way more toys for it than I should, but I use all of them. Look around & see if you can find a JD 2210 with low hours. It's just an older version of the 2305.
