    I would recommend one that fits your properties...not necessarily the biggest deck or the biggest engine either.

    We have two 48" WB's that we treat as trim mowers and use them for very steep hillsides.

    A 72" for us would be way to big on the commercial properties so we settled for a 61". We opted for a bigger engine...not the biggest. We upgraded to the 29 LC/EFI kawi. You can go bigger with diesel or the 35HP B&S. But for us that would be overkill.

    The only time the machine bogs down a little is when we have the rear soft bagger on and we head up the steep inclines.

    Perhaps you missed it.

    I was giving a vague recommendation for a vague question.
