Different length blades on 2+ mowers, would customer notice?

I'm thinking of making a wing mower for mowing around/under pine trees so I don't have to rub my arm against them. I have a few different choices of mower decks to make this with. My Toro 266 has a 52" deck which has 18" long blades. Its spare deck is 38" and has the same length blades but no height adjusting mechanism built in. I also have a Snapper 42" 2 blade deck from a rear engine rider. It has a height adjusting mechanism built into the deck and making a wing mower from it would be easier. Its blades would be 21 or 22" long. Do you think any customers would notice or care. I have one picky customer but he's not REALLY picky.
This wing mower would have its own engine.
Wanted: brochure showing Dixie Chopper pull type mower.
