Have you looked at the Hustlers? We have one and my wife loves it, she will not let me on it to mow anymore. The one we have is just under the commercial models, 25 hp motor and a 54" deck, we have had no issues with it in the 4-5 years we have had it. When we bought ours it was 4 years 0% interest with payments just under $100/month and no fee for early pay off.

I had the husqvarna mz5424 and was very happy with it.
Pretty much commercial grade mower.  Welded deck with lifetime warranty and all parts serviceable.
Gave it to my father a couple years back and it is still going strong.

Not sure I'd want to get on a mower that needs a roll bar.

Just think how much more time you have now for the wife to find things for you to do.

How much time difference is there between the old mower you used and this one?

2 years ago I switched from a 52 inch cut, lawn tractor type mower to a 48 inch cut zero turn JD. Cut my mowing time almost in 1/2 and cut my weedeat'n  by more than that.  Surprised me that the zero turn, with a Kawasaki engine, was cheaper than a tractor type with a briggs on it.
