Anything else, 48 and smaller get a walkbehind or stander
52" and bigger get a stander or ztr..

you cant be cutting anything big if your looking at a 48.. Stick with a walkbehind and save as much as you can..when the time comes for a ztr youll know it..Im not calling you out but everybody thinks they need a zeroturn and its somply not the case most of the time

If you have your heart set on a z get at least a 52
Disagree to some extent I run a 48" Z (because I stole it price wise) and cut right along and have no complaints cutting 1-2 ac lawns. I would agree that wide open multi acre lots would call for 60" Z or bigger.
