    How many HP are needed to for what size deck (all deck sizes)? I am talking about enough HP for all the needs of a professional.

    It really depends on several factors...

    1) Rider or Walk Behind
    2) Belt or Hydro
    3) Weight of User (Riders and Walk Behinds with Sulky/Velke)
    4) Types of grasses mowed
    5) Mowing Conditions

    These are my suggestions, only if the manufacturers followed them!!!

    21 = 6
    32 = 12.5-14
    36 = 14
    48 = 17-19
    52 = 19-23
    60 = 23-27
    72 = 25-40+

    AArrrgghhh AArrrgghh...More POWER
