    i am purchasing a new tthp this spring and was curious if the 48 and the 52 operate the same with a velky.i weigh about 175 and dont want any problems with the deck raising up on me.are both machines about the same or is the 52 really a big difference over the 48.

    You won't notice much of a difference. If you know how to run the machine well, you'll save some time with a 52.

    The biggest thing you will notice between the two deck sizes will be the amount of trim side you have. The 52" deck will give you a little more of a trim side, but only by a couple inches. And even when cutting the 52" deck won't save you THAT much time over the 48", at least not on most accounts.
