As long as you can get a 36" through most of the gates, then get a 36". Followed by a 52" stand-on mower, (scag, exmark, toro) because they are lighter and usually faster than a ztr. As well as priced less, not much, but around $1000 less.
I have a Toro t-bar proline 36" and I love it. I have a side bagger and gator blades on the mower and it did great at picking up leaves for me this Fall. I am selling it and going to buy a new one next season. It's on the delaware Craigslist.
I used a pistol grip Exmark Metro 36" my first year and the hand fatigue was horrible after a full day of mowing. The Toro also had a much better cut, but the Metro was beat up.
There is an Old Blue Chair for each and every one of us, we just have to find it.
