Here New Holland is the most common. 1411 are very good mowers, could easily mow 40 acres 4x a year, and can be had for less than 10k. 85 hp will pull it, but may be a little light. I pull one with 100 hp and it does well. you can get a 1431 for the same price usually, maybe run one of those with your bigger tractor? It seems that 1431 are usually not in as good of condition as the 1411 though.
I used to have a John Deere 920 before the NH. The JD was a tough mower that worked well, but I like the NH better. I think it floats better, pulls easier, and I like the rolls better than the impellers in the deere.
