    it is a big difference. i thought a 61 inch would be to big, but now i could not live without one. very big time saver. i could not beleave how much faster cuts are now.

    I use 52's and last month I had to use a loaner and it was a 61. It was a big time saver. However I never thought I would be saying this but I was not happy with the quality of the cut. On uneven ground and on slopes it scalped a lot. Now I am back to where you are. I want to go with the 61 but I'm not sure.

    Get a 61" Ferris with suspension. They don't scalp.
