personally if you dont have anything over 1 acre. and anything real small. i would get a 60" wb. im not going to try and explain, you will have to find out for yourself. cause if i do, people will start blowing up on it.

I would personally go with a 48 zero turn. I have plenty of residential properties under an acre and many beach lawns that I still do with the rider. If you can afford the rider right off the bat def get it, ull get real sick of standing and be wishing you went for the zero turn. I wouldn't go any bigger than a 52 if you have some small lawns.

If you are truly going to buy both, I would buy the W/B first.

all of my lawns are under one acre and I have a exmark lazer z xs 31/60 and a exmark tthp 15/36....this set up has worked very well for me.
