 To simplify--IYO--Who makes the BEST finish mower?

I'm looking at new and used finishing mowers, and have posted asking about King Kutter and Douglas, and have also made a few calls on Woods and Bushog brands.

To save some time, in *your* opinion, who makes the best residential-use finish mower and why?

What type of grass do you have and how often do you feed it? How often can you mow. Different make mowers do a better job on different types of grass. You need to find one that works with your situation.

 To simplify--IYO--Who makes the BEST finish mower?

I'm pretty set on buying a Kubota 3430 with a cab. As for my grass, the front yard was planted with Rebel Exceda grass seed (sorry--I don't know the specific types). I have fertilized it with a time-release fertilizer/weed killer that's supposed to fertilize for two months. I think it was a 28-2-2 fertilizer, and boy is my grass green!

The back yard, side field and back field are anyone's guess. I know I have some winter rye in the fields, but that's about it. I plan to reseed all of that (till it under and start from scratch) perhaps in the fall. But for now, it's a veeeeeery thick, fast-growing grass with tall brown stems and regular green grass underneath. The actual back "yard" is mainly fescue I'd assume that's very patchy with weeds, brown spots and bare areas where I've had stumps removed and electrical lines placed underground. Lots of work to do there.

Anyway, in the end, I plan on having a veeeery nice, thick stand of grass similar to the front in all of the field areas and back yard. It'll total about 4 acres or so. As for feeding, I'll just fertilize a couple of times a year (unless, of course, anyone has a better suggestion!).
