Zero Turn Mowers

I am thinking of upgrading my mower at our river property and am thinking of a zero turn mower. I have about 10 to 15 acres along the river, lots of trees with low hanging limbs. Low for a cabbed tractor and shredder, but high enough for the riding law mower. I have seen some tractors that were larger than a riding mower but smaller than my cabbed tractor. Currently my riding mower takes me about 4 hours to do the yard and about 8 to 10 hours for the river bottom. I like the 72" decks that some of the zero turn models have. Anyone have any suggestions on models and brands. I like the Cub Cadet Tank series, and have a John Deere riding mower, needing something quality and heavier duty than an off the shelf model. Thanks, Cody

Suit yourself Big Jon but I cut lawns every night after school as a kid. I didn't mind the work but I hated the boredom. That's a lot of your life spent giving grass a haircut.
