Best entry level riding mower?

Im looking into purchasing an entry level riding lawn mower. I have about 13,000 sq. Ft to mow so doing a reel mower is out of the budget unfortunately.

If you're not in a rush, I would recommend checking if any of your local Home Depots have a "clearance" section for returned mowers and periodically keeping an eye on their inventory. I saw a bunch of lightly or never used Honda, Toro, etc. models (ZTR, 21", lawn tractor) at some pretty attractive (30%+) discounts last year. Some hadn't even had oil or gas put in them, so I have no idea why they were returned.

At one HD, this stuff was kept inside the garden center. At another one, this stuff was sitting out near the contractor entrance. Stuff seemed to turn over pretty quickly, so it's worth checking out on a regular basis. When I last checked in April, they only had returned snow blowers out, so it might take a little more time for returned mowers to show up.
