I think I'd go with something from the JD 700 series with a diesel. I keep seeing them at the dealership and thinking, "When that thing's 25 years old, I'm buying one." I'd also come up with a pretty serious maintenance schedule before I hit the road.

The gear drive thing is something to consider though. I doubt the hydro engineers intend their product to be used full out all day everyday.

My choice would be an Ingersoll PS tractor, only need to add a cup holder. I'm sure many other higher end units could do it too.
Now if it was only a one way trip I would use Houndsman JD LA 105 with cab and a/c, along with stereo, cup holder included.
Can't post a photo of it but you might find it there, it really is something to see

Wait, somebody fixed up an LA105? I mean, I love my mower, it's very capable and hard-working. Not exactly a special machine though.
