Size of Deck and Quality of cut

The newbee has some questions for you lawn experts. I'm thinking of buying the Hustler Super Z with a 72 inch deck but would like to ask about the quality of cut? Do larger decks give poorer quality cuts?

The lot I'll be cutting is 5 acres of flat open land but it has rough ground.

Quality of cut can be just as good with a 72 as with a 60. It all depends on how good the operator is on any machine. I run both size decks on all types of terrain with no problems.

The 72" will give you an excellent quality of cut. The larger the deck however the more you have to be careful about scalping the ground when you are cutting in uneven terrain like around burms and ditches. In general I would go with the largest deck that your terrain and landscape allows as it makes a big difference in the amount of mowing time.

One advantage of the larger decks is that your quality of cut will be better on taller material and at a faster ground speed because of the length of the mower blades.

If it is thick grass I will take a 60 inch deck any day over the 72 inch deck (less clumping and a cleaner cut).
