Simplicity is one of the few homeowner lawnmower manufactures that builds their own machines. If you are going to cut a lot of grass (1/2 to 1 acre lots can add up quick) I recommend looking at their Derby line of mowers. The transaxle walkbehinds are virtually indestructable and last a long time with very little maintenace. I had a Woods (built using Ferris plans, Ferris builds the Derby and is owned by Simplicity) CM-36 that was 10 years old when I sold it and the guy who bought it is still using it.
When I first started mowing, the guy I cut with had a
Deutz-Allis. DA got bought up and eventually became Simplicity. It was a pretty good mower (for a tractor) but I'd prefer a zero turn or a WB. The reason it stripes well is because of a roller on the back of the deck. It also helps with scalping. They are expensive also.
