With a potential move pending, I'm thinking about shuffling my mower lineup around to better handle a variety of lawn sizes w/o having to use the walk behinds in the future. I've been using a full size 52" lazer as a loaner and have come to appreciate its advantages in wide out open area mowing vs. my hp. I would ideally like to find a used 44" HP model for gates and lawns, and set it up for mulching for use in and around tight areas, and get a full size lazer for wide open areas. The smaller unit would also serve as my backup for the larger mower. I'd like to hear the pros and cons of the 52" and 60" decks on the lazers. With the smaller unit around gates and access wouldn't usually be an issue. But does the bigger 60" have any drawbacks I need to consider? I would of course prefer the greater producing machine. I'd be mowing bluegrass at 3" to 4" on mostly flat land.
