Have you thought about looking into stand on. Maybe a 48"

i use a 54" on everything i cut. 1/8th acre all the way up to 3 acres. now if you live where there's alot of gated/fenced backyards with narrow gates then you will want something smaller. most fences i've ran into here my 54" would fit through the gate. i've had 1 or 2 where i had to use my 21" pushmower but they were tiny backyards so no big deal.

How are you guys mowing 1/8 th 1/4 acre lots with 50" plus mowers? Vacant lots an only 1 pass? I run a 42" ztr on 1/2 to 1 acre lots and it is very quick. On the smaller lots 1/8 to 1/4 my 37" is sometes way too big and have to use a 21 push.

it's more than one pass lol. alot of it depends on how the yard is layed out. here is a pic of one of my small yards:


another one was like this and i had to use a 21" for the backyard because the gate was too small. these pics were before i cut it:
