Hmm... First I'll disagree with your premise. For a cabbage palm infestation, you need a backhoe to get them out of the ground, a brush grapple to carry them off, and a swamp to toss them in. I've dealt with dozens of them that way so far. Still have hundreds to go.I've got to cut about 2+ acres of Floriduh grass at my place. Since nothing has more grass flakes than the lawn care industry here, it's time I do it myself. Zero Turn mowers are a necessity, as my property is infested with Cabbage Palm trees. Pro-sumer Zero Turn grade cutters are my intention. Current favorites are the Ariens Ikon XD 52 and the Toro Time Cutter 50.

Do your worst.
Red necks'll pay you in natty daddy's for cabbage palms, ya know. They say it's the same thing as hearts of palm you get from La-Choy.Hmm... First I'll disagree with your premise.

Then you'll still need to mow. I'm on my second Scag, so obviously liked the first one. Mine's a little one at 48" but still cuts my lawn in about half the time that its predecessor took just because it can cut at a much faster speed. I like it. My neighbor has the 72" one. Super nice machine but he told me what it cost and you can get two like mine for about the same money. Yipes.
I've offered mine for free on craigslist and Facebook and nobody wanted them. My neighbor did sell some of mine and some of his but the work of cleaning off the old branches and vines made it a pretty hard way to make a buck and he has better ways so stopped doing it.Red necks'll pay you in natty daddy's for cabbage palms, ya know.

I dunno. I ate some. It tastes like.... It pretty much tastes like whatever you cook it in/with.
You cannot go wrong with local dealer service. The Toro is fine as are most others mentioned. I fit a cushion under the seat on the springs of my current steed which mellowed that rough ride. I'm always going too fast for a beer. You've pulled the trigger but if I ever need another, I'll get a front bladed rig for the increased reaching ability.Did the deed: A Toro TimeCutter 50 with the Kohler engine.
Wholly Carp, we PAY people to cut our grass with these things??? It should be the other way around: Never had so much fun cutting grass. And I'm sure I can easily fix that downspout.
The Toro looked to be the better machine, but what really sealed the deal was that the best mower shop in the area sells and services ONLY Toros. They also offered a lot of extra benis for the same price as Home Despot.
Nuthin' like mowing down those damn hitchhiker plants. Die, Die, Die!!!Tractor therapy I calls it with a dollop of instant gratification.
My first one didn't have a roll bar but I didn't know they even sell them without any more.Man, that Zero-Turn is so cool!
Found out I unconsciously cut in a counter-clockwise direction. However, the Toro is engineered to best to use a clockwise cutting pattern. No biggie, just an observation... and a lil' retraining
Next is a seed spreader for the new universal 2" hitch receiver. And... a roll bar. It was more than a little disconcerting to see that front wheel come off the ground, hesitate, then bang down. Whew!
No worries. I learned it the hard way on dad tractor bushhoggin. The next trip out I took the chainsaw with me. So I could get closer to the trees. I hated string trimmingMarcjsmith, I owe you a dram of my Highland Single Malt Scotch for preventing me from having to learn that hard lesson on my own...
