Will my productivity increase going from 54"WB to a 52" V-ride stander ?

Guys just as the title says, im more than likely going to buy a V-ride this weekend 52 inch for $6161 +tax im having to make a pretty quick decision to take advantage of the fleet pricing but my question is do you think going to a 2 inch smaller stander will be faster/more produtive than my currrent 54" walk behind? I had planned on getting a 60 rider but this is the best deal going in my area, from the website and everything looks like a stander will go alot faster than walk behinds but does anybody have any experience wither or not i will notice a difference cutting down on my times on my yards ? Thanks for any insight.
