    yes when you talk about different brands they will cut differently. but I talking saying a 48" exmark and a 60" exmark for example. the only thing that changes is the width of your rows. the quality doesn't drop going from the 48" to the 60". not that I've ever seen.

    I can take my 36" and 52" and mow right next to either. the only difference you'll notice is the width of the rows.

    I'd always opt for the 52-56. That's just about perfect.

    I agree, my 40" cuts exactly the same as my 52"

    The opening question was --

    'If you had one choice, what size deck would you get?'

    In this hypothetical I'd opt for 52 ;-)

    I have a 21", 36", two 54" and one 60". Will probably trade in the 54" for a 60" or keep it and just get another 60". lol

    I have no choice but a 36" or smaller. Don't run a single route without a gate and don't want the gas of hauling around two mowers all the time. Borrowed my buddies 48 one day and pushed mowed the back yard with a 21 to see time difference. Actually costed me about 5-10 minutes. I would love to just be able to sit on a 52 or 60 all day but in my second year of business just not an option to pick and choose.

    hauling around a second mower isn't all that much extra on gas.

    I haul around a 52" and 36" all week and only get the 36" off the trailer 2 times a week. I use no more gas than if I left it at home.
