Wright Stander 48" vs 52"

most of our mowing is smaller residential lawns although we also have big properties to mow as well...sometimes i feel that 52" is just too big, especially for striping purposes...i have even contemplated having a few 42" decks but feel that my production would drop dramatically...

we have two 52" grandstands and are looking to replace them...i feel like if we are gonna go bigger towards the 48/52" sizes you might as well go 52, but maybe I'm wrong...

we are feeling pretty strong about 1 36" rapid height and 2 52" stander x's at this point in time...think that is a good idea? would you do anything different?

I have a 52 in Stander X and love it. I do have some gates it will not fit through that I would be able to fit a 48 in deck through. Sometimes I wish I had bought the 48.

I think a 52" (or 2) and a 36" would be a great combo. Wish I didn't have to bag, then I'd run stand on's.

I have found that a 48 is about the best overall cutting deck for quality cut with little scalp issues and on small properties a 52 will hardly make much difference in speed.

On larger properties for me where I am I will take a 72, the difference in speed is like huge. My 72 Super where I am will do easily in between what 2 or 3 48 normal z's will do on larger areas.
