"Weapons of Grass Destruction" (Love that tesmith66!)
John Deere F935, with Yanmar 3 cylinder diesel, 72 inch hydraulically raised/lowered front mount deck. Mowes at about 12 MPH. Not zero turn, though. (pic isn't of mine, but mine is identical except for lights). I'd love to find the snowblower attachment for it....
Swisher 60" tow behind offset mower. When towed behind the Deere, gives nearly a 11 foot cutting path.
Husqvarna YTH2148 garden tractor, with 48" deck, good for mowing in tighter areas, and yard work. Crapsman weed wacker.
Exmark Lazer Z, 60" cutting deck. Rides like a dream, top speed around 10 mph at least. Fill up the tank and extra tank, and it will last all summer, so it gets pretty decent AMPG (acres mowed per gallon) too.
Wasn't good enough for my grandpa, so we bought it from him for $4k or $5k, I can't remember which, but it was about half the price of what he bought it for two years before we bought it.
edit: Forgot about the dislikes, I don't like the roll bar, I completely forgot about it one year, and ended up ripping the internet satellite dish off our house...

Those are decent machines. Why dont you take the roll bar off?? I have about 12 of them hanging on the wall. I have mowed some crazy hills and never once came close to rubber side up. I hate rollbars. They did come in handy once though. I got a flat on the front and didnt have a jack so I drove the roll bar into a tree branch and it lifts the front of the machine off the ground.
