    Depends on the size of lawn. Flat & open + the bigger the better. If it's small, then 48 or smaller. I plan on purchasing a 48 this next year, but will use my 61's on most of my stuff.

    If the lawns are like the ones I do, you hardly have room for a 60" and a 52" is pushing it. Also a big deck seems to find every little flaw in the yard. My yards all seem to have dips here and there in them. The 52" Z I used to own would scalp easily if I wasnt really watching it. I switched to a 48" and havent had that problem.
    If I mowed big flat open yards...then gimme the biggest deck I can put on it.
