    it all depends on the size of your properties. Most people will buy a 48" or 36" first then move up to a 52 or 60" rider but if you serve mainly small properties with lots of gates then the smaller would be better

    We use 6 X 10 enclosed trailers and they fit 60 " laser and 44" laser . Its tight but they work well.

    keep in mind that most people who have fences only have a 36" gate. I made the mistake of getting a 52" lazer z and stuck mowing backyards with a 21". I'm looking at getting a 36" soon. Not that my 52" is bad, i just can't get it into most of my account's backyard.
