As it is now on most properties, I can not cut the same path more than once, so each week I overlap and or change cut direction.
Your 36'' has skinny tires A 48'' might be heavier but they have wider tires
The wider the tire is there is less ground pressure where the tire sits
But a 48'' wont work where you mow then I guess your stuck with a 36'' mower
