    my opinion is this. I was in the same situation a couple of years ago. My dealer advised me to by the 52 and I never regretted it . The deck overhangs the rear wheels by about three inches on each side on the 52 on the 48 it is only about 1 inch. If you have ever used a 36 walkbehind mower and a 48 walkbehind you know how much difference that ovehang makes. On a 48 you will be scrubbing your rear wheels on every obstical you encounter and have much more trimming than the 52. The small amount of money more you will spend will far outweigh the agrivation of not being able to mow closely to objects good luck
