What size zero turn for under 1/2 acre lawns?

I'm considering making the jump to get a zero turn. I currently use a Gravely hydro 36in mower and it works great but I'm looking to speed things up and maybe get off my feet. I'm not a fan of the sulkys because its still standing up. I'm ready to sit down some!

Mostly all the properties in my area are 1/2 acre or under. I always see guys with zero turns around and they seem to make it work instead of using a walk behind but I've never asked/observed what size deck they had. I know I won't be able to use a zero turn on all lawns since some have gates and have hills/slopes which would be unsafe.

I'm pretty stuck on getting a diesel since I'm a huge fan of diesel's plus I've read nothing but good things about them.

Snapper pro makes a S175X with a 52in deck.

Would a 52in be too big for anything under 1/2 acre?
