Any recent review on ride-on-mowers for home lawn?

Hi,
I willl appreciate if someone can point me to articles or consumer reviews about ride-on-mowers? Should I go for higher (20-30) horsepower but medium (42") cutting deck? or other way? My lawn is about 1/5 of an acre with little slope. Is bagging attachement sin these mowers/tractors are effective without choking the mower or the duct? My current walk-behing mower gets choked if the grass is little tall or a bit wet.
Thanks in advance.
Sam.

1/5 of an acre? .20 acre? Just get a better walk behind. Your lawn is really too small for a rider in my opinion. If you can get a walk behind with a larger HP engine it will bog less but be heavier so also get self propelled. If you get a self propelled get one with an adjustable speed. Mine is single speed and it slows me down. I would think that a rider would take just as long as a push on such a small lawn.
Also - Mow more frequently, you are gutting off less grass. Its better for the lawn and the mower.
Also - Its good exercise.
BTW - My lawn is same size.

Normally I cut my lawn every other week with a oro Recycler - Self Propelled walk behind mower. This summer I am travelling a lot and I cannt keep up with the schedule. Also my lawn is on a slope, which make it harder to mow.
Now I have two options either to hire someone to do the job, or have a rideon mower and move it every 3 or 4th week.
TIA
Sam
