    On 1/2 acre lots would a 52" turftracer be as productive as a 48 " tiger cub? Any input would be great

    on paper the 52 will be more productive....only you will know exactly what your mix of properties is and how tight the quarters are....I know it did not anwer your question... The scag website has the 52" deck cutting 2 more acres in an 8 hour day..., but then you have to factor the grey area of fatigue....sitting versus standing.... or even walking if you don't have a velke...
