Go from zero turn to lawn tractor?

We mow about 2.5 acres and currently have a cub cadet z-force 60 inch zero turn mower. It takes about 1.5 hours to mow. There are only about 8 trees and 2 sheds to mow around. The zero turn is so rio ugh if a ride that it hurts my back and neck after mowing about 30 minutes. I am thinking that a regular garden tractor would be more comfortable but this is the only mower I've owned so I don't know. Am thinking of selling mine and buying a regular lawn tractor if it would increase the comfort and not add too much time to mowing.

-how long would it take to mow with a good lawn tractor and 48-52inch deck? Some are listed at 7 mph which is the same as my zero turn

-is a lawn tractor gong to be more comfortable on uneven/rough terrain?

-my cub has a 23hp Kawasaki engine and only 196 hours. It is a few years old but it good shape. How much do you think I could sale it for?

Thanks

IMO the LT will be about 1/3 slower Even though the LT will go 7 mph I dough you will be able to mow that fast? Why not look into air ride seat for you Zero turn? IMO you will really take hit on the Zero turn if you attempt to sell it. See what others have to say?
