Productivity numbers from manufacturers are just that, numbers.

They take the deck width, and multiply it by the machine's top speed to come up with acres/hour. But no one ever mows at top speed all the time. Turning, going around obstacles, slowing down for bumpy or uneven ground, all things that we all run into. And in some situations, I believe a more-agile, lighter, more-stable WB will cut just as much, or even more, square footage as a Z in the same period of time.
