I'm sitting down trying to figure out my mower mix for this season so that I can handle wide areas, slopes, and also gated areas. It have a Lazer Z HP 48" and it's great, but I will unfortunately need to keep smaller deck mowers around for the rare occasions when it won't fit into a gated area. I recall seeing another brand's ad a few years back which showed a removeable trim side edge for their deck, so that the mower could be fit through a gate for which it was otherwise too large to fit through. It made a deck effectively several inches more narrow when it needed to get through a gate. I think that's a great feature for a mower.
