Default Zero Turn Mower Recommendations

Ok I'm looking for a nice residential zero turn for under $4500. I need a welded deck and actual welded tubular frame. I had a Cub 50" RZT at one time and it did ok, but I am looking for something more durable and as close to commercial quality as possible. My other option is to buy a used commercial unit but you never know what you are getting buying used. I have looked at the Bad Boy MZ Magnum 54", hustler Raptor 60", toro MX5060, and some others with welded decks. Yes I know some will say buy Scag, Kubota, etc but can't afford them new. I currently use a beat up Swisher 60" Trailmower and my atv on 5-6 acres per week.

Jason this z has been my best seller for about 4 years now. Very big bang for the buck! lifetime frame and deck warranty, with a 3 year warranty on the rest of the machine. I know its a bit over your budget but you can buy it with 0% interest for up to 48 months right now! If you lived closer to me i have 9 more left on sale for $4599.00.

Xyz I went to a nearby Husky dealer today to look at the MZ61. I have to say I was pretty impressed. Looks to be built real sturdy.

I would highly suggest the Husqvarna zero turn lawn mower. I did mowing over the summer on school grounds and it never turned me down, solid machine. Also, the Ferris zero turns are also good machines.

Bunch of fenceposts, some fence, and some sheep (or goats if rougher/brushy rather than grassy.)
