    Hey guys my question is about mowers, do you find that the smaller the deck the better the cut? I have a DC with a 72in and it does great and a Kubota with a 60in but my exmark 48in cuts awesome and it has a fixed deck. What are your thoughts?

    Nothing touches an eXmark.

    Even the larger decks?

    90% of my accounts are residential postage stamp lots. These lots are often uneven with small humps in the lawns. I have a 37, 44, and a 52 inch deck. The 37 is the most consistent of these mowers. There are fewer scalps and the cut is the most level.

    I put my 60" on some of my "postage stamp" lawns, if there are more than one together, Hell yes I bust that puppy out. Leaves as nice of a cut as the 36", and a little quicker, especially when there are two or three lined up.
