    Default Fastest, with the wide cut?

    I am interested in real world ground speed with the biggest, widest, lawn quality, cut.

    Which kubota ZTR would be the best match?

    I have flat stable ground, no obstacles, and am interested in mowing between 2 and 15 acres of grasses.

    TIA

    Did you consider a Ferris with independent suspension?

    I test drove the ferris before I bought my kubota. It was ok but I find the Kubota handles just as nicely. Plus it's a TANK!!!

    Seriously. If you dot have obstacles and level ground get the biggest deck finish mower you can find for the biggest tractor you can afford. I love my ZTR and can mow circles around tractors with similar sized decks but if you can cut three times the width...

    Now I am back to looking at tractors, and just might purchase a new 50hp model with a 15ft mower deck.

    It all comes down to how the landscaping works out around some new structures that are going up.

    I may just opt out altogether and turn the "lawn" back to pasture.

    If you have any obstacles to mow around a 15' is going to be a nightmare. If its all wide open spaces, that 15' will put down a pile of acres! I have seen the great big gang finish mowers that do a heck of a nice job. My neighbor used to have me mow his "lawn" with an MX-10 with sharpened blades and it did a real nice job except for some barely noticeable ag tire prints. I surely wouldn't want to mow 15 acres every week and a half just to say I had a lawn though regardless of how it was mowed.

    Another option might be a WAM (Wide Area mower). Deere and Toro both make them. Used ones usually run $4-7k around here depending on condition.
