    What do you guys think is the best deck size for a ztr if you are doing commercial and residential. Becouse most of the residentials around here in neighborhoods have gates. Is a 52" to small if you are doin huge lots to though. Which is a better deck size 52" or 60"?

    With a ZTR a 60 is optimal. (at least for me, and my lawns) It all depends on what kind of lawns you cut.

    I'm not sure if even a 52" would fit in most gates. So if you really want a ZTR maybe get a 60" ZTR but also get a 36" walk behind to get into the gates.

    I know 52" wouldn't fit in most gates in my area.
