    That's about what I run, a 48" Z-Force backed up with a 36" grandstand and the TurfMaster 30" really can't go wrong.

    Not really noticeable. Only difference is that on alot of model, the 52" are more commercial with bigger pumps and motors. But the extra cutting width really isnt a big deal at all. And as another point of pro for the 52, if you have the same brand 52 and 36, for the most part they will use the exact same blades.

    How do you like the GS 36" and the turfmaster. Have you done a review?

    I'm very interested in both of those models.

    I really like the idea of a full-on walk behind. I had an encore 32" that worked great for a while, nice cut etc. However, I was having trouble finding belts/parts so I figured it was time to sell.

    When looking to replace it, my first plan was to get a 32" scag. Dealer quoted me $3800. So the Exmark Commercial 30 seems like a great way to fill that deck size while saving $2k.
