Depends on how fast your current mower can go. The Walkers are very slow, so you may not see any benefit at all (not including dumping bags/w.e).

What is your current mower? What type of properties are you cutting? Small residential? 1 acre lots? 2 acre lots? 5 acre lots?

Well.. It looks like you will be doin 7% better an hr.

7.0 MPH X 42" / 124 = 2.3 A/Hr & 80%

7.0 MPH X 52" / 124 = 2.9 A/Hr & 80%

Just buy a bigger deck for the mower you have and switch when you need to. Its hard to cover a large area fast with a regular Walker. I used to have 2 Walkers, 48" GHS and 62" SD deck. The ride of a ZTR is much better than a Walker on large lawns. Demo the new Super B 60", it goes along at a good pace.
