View Full Version : Production difference between 66" and 72" ?

Its still up in the air as to whether or not we will be getting a Hustler or a Chopper this late winter still, however I have been wondering how much of a difference in production with a 66" deck. I want to be able to do a decent amount of bagging as well as cutting a few very large apartment complexes.

A 72" deck is a no brainer when looking at the larger props but when thinking about bagging a 66" is the largest I would want to use.

Depending on conditions, you will see a 10% increase in production in regards to a increase over a 60".
You really don't realize it until you drive it and experience it.
It doesn't scalp like a 72" and doesn't feel like a monstrous unit either.

Thanks for the response PJ. I was kinda hopping to hear from some guys who have went from a 72" to a 66" and or bag grass with a 66".
