On the Toro sponsor page there's a photo posted by Toro of a 36" unit at the GIE+ Expo. I requested it as I was not in attendance. The 36" )and I suppose maybe the 40" unit) appears to be on a smaller and different frame. For instance, the deck lowering mechanism appears to be 'exposed', the hydraulic reservoir is placed differently, it just looks more compact and smaller all around. based on that photograph I wouldn't agree that only the deck size is smaller on smaller-than-60" units. I would agree that is true for the 48" and 52", however.
