Lazer - 48" vs 52"???

What is the advantage of a 52 over a 48, or vise versa? It seems like such a small jump in cut to roll out a whole product line, but there has to be a reason.

52" has better trim side overhang and actually cuts a 48" swath when you consider overlap on each row. The 48" is just a smidge more compact and places the tires out to the outer edge of the stripe a bit better than the 52", which tends to make the stripe look better in many peoples opinion. other than that........?

52" uses the same blades as a 36". Nice to have only one size blade to order and sharpen.

Here is the cut and stripes a 52 leaves, I love my lazer Z. I find it nimble enough and not to big but I just cut my grass at home. All my landscape friends run 52's

I like the 52". Big enough to do some acreage yet nimble enough for tight spots. Plus my 6x12 enclosed trailer wont fit a 60"

Well, at least not without getting up to ramming speed first.

On enclosed trailers the rear opening for the ramp comes in on each side. So no a 60" will not fit....my 52" barley fits through.
