    If you're bent on spending $5000 on a mower for 1 acre of property, more power to you, but a $1500-$2000 lawn tractor properly maintained will last a LONG, LONG time, and save you some serious coin. I cut 3 1/3 acres of grass with a YTH2454 Husky and it's holding up pretty well, and it's on its 6th season...Just want to point out that option since it hasn't been mentioned yet.

    adirondackmtnman,

    Certainly there is truth in what you wrote. But, my 28 year old Wheel Horse garden tractor is still running strong. Two years ago, I did take three old mower decks and make one "new" one.
