View Full Version : How far does the cut extend beyond the wheels? 42 vs 48

So I'm >< this close to pulling the trigger on a Sport.

What I'm curious on is the cutting area outside of the wheels. How far does the cutting area extend beyond the wheels on the 42" and 48" decks. Assume the farthest distance, which hopefully is not on the ejection side. Is the 42" deck offset to provide the same distance of cut beyond the wheels that the 48" provides?

Here are the trim side measurements for the 3 Sport model decks.

Trim Capacity (left side)
42 in: 1.3 in (3.3 cm)
48 in: 3.5 in (8.9 cm)
54 in: 6.0 in (15.24 cm)
