Question 52" or 60" ?

I cut mostly average size suburban lawns. Would you prefer a 52" or 60" deck? Or neither?

I am looking at a mower with a 52" cut but I can get the 60" for 100.00 more.

Thanks,
M

do you have any larger lawns? if so get the 60" if it will fit on the average lawns as well. i have a 54" and cut everything from 1/4 acre - 3 acres with it. it would be nice to have a 60" on those larger yards. i have a few where my 54" barely fits through some areas though so a 60" wouldn't work on those lawns.

the best setup would be to have a 48" and a 60".

60" is the smallest we have, it's pretty universal.

I agree. The best set up for me is a 48" and 60". Based on cutting 5 hrs a day the 60" should save a min. of 1/2 hr over the 54". Time to do another lawn every day ?
