If I had a deck like that on my ‘91 professional 8, I wouldn’t have had to buy my Gravely ProTurn 152. I just couldn’t keep up with mowing the pastures and the woods, about 5+ acres total.
If I had to mow 5+ acres I would have bought the 50 inch deck that the gentleman had. The professional 12 has enough power to run the 50 inch deck I live on about 1/2 acre with about 40 x 60 garden with my yard size and layout the 40 mower made more sense . Plus I like that deck discharge is to the left back side of the deck so you can mow tight against stuff on either side of the deck

Every breath I take as a Free man was paid for with the blood of an American Soldier
From Concord and Valley Forge to the sands of Iraq
and mountians of afghanistan American soldiers have
paid the ultimate price For our Freedom.I am ever mindful
and for ever greatful for their sacrifice
My heros have always been American Soldiers
