Mower noob

Hi, my name is cyclehead and I'm a mower noob. During the last year I bought a house with a one acre field, and another acre of lawn. Also during the year, my daughter finally reclaimed the little rider mower that I had patched up for her. So I'm currently without anything to maintain my new field and lawn. I'm diligently rummaging the forum, calling local dealers and kicking the tires at the local big boxes in my search for another mower. I hope to find something durable that won't shuck swash plate parts.

Most important thing to establish is a budget. Next would be a good description of the terrain you will be mowing. Modern inexpensive entry level rigs won't last more than a couple of years on a lawn with a lot of hills. Will you need to do more than mow a lawn? Snowblow, plow, rototill, etc?
