My garden’s about an acre and a half and has trees, shrubs, slopes and is rough in parts. I’m getting too old and bad tempered to be towed about by a 30” Toro TimeWaster so am going for a ride-on. It needs AWD, hydro drive to wheels and blades ie no belts, must be able to get under shrubs, have a small TC and large wheels and be very manoeuvrable. I don’t like B&S engines, so Honda/Kwacker/Subaru? 100/110 cm deck would be about right.
I’m thinking of Husqvarna or Stiga but I’ve heard pos and neg about both makes for build quality and reliability. Anyone any suggestions/experiences please?

Not had much to do with Husqvarna to be honest.  Stiga is ok but pretty sure they don't make a hydro powered deck, all belts unfortunately.

Why not take a look at a Ariens Zoom zero turn machine.  https://www.ariens.com/en-gb/lawn-products/zero-turn-riding-mowers/zoom/zoom-42

Or perhaps one of the Toro Zero turns, if you prefer a steering wheel.  :)
