    Mow about 2 acres on a 42in rider, takes about 4hrs, looking to cut time with
    out sacrificing quality of cut.
    Looking at a 60in cut swisher with 25 hp B&S intek, has eaton commerical
    grade transaxles, and welded deck for $4000.
    Have not heard of this mower in this forum, was only looking for a 48-50 in
    cut, but price seems good?

    I think the Vanguard is considered the pro engine by Brigs. My recomendation is to go with a 48" or 52" Exmark CT. It will cost more but the mower will last a life time. I had a different ZT before I bought the CT and I wish I would of bought the CT in the first place. I thought I was saving money but you really aren't. My guess you could pick up a 48" for around 5000 to 5500.

    Time wise my property is a little smaller than yours and I am using the 48". I cut the lawn in less than 1hr. Also, with ZT there is very little trimming.

    You may want to demo the Hustler Fastrack 20/52". It also comes with a 4 year warranty.
