    Hi I am looking for the same type of mowers I am also thinking about the graveley line. The dump from seet bagger is no good for me I need a bag or bucket collection system to get the clippings in the truck. The graveley is about 7k-8k not including the bagging system. Lesco laser has a dump from the seet system that looks sturdy. I have a lesco 48 wb it runs great .

    Woodbros,

    How small are these lawns? I can mow everything that I can fit between with my 60" Lazer. I can see where on some small lawns I probably wouldn't take a time hit by dropping to a 52", but then I would on the larger ones. 8" is 8". You gain a LOT more Trim side when you jump to a 60" too. Fullsize 52"ers have the same width rear wheel track as a 60", but they simply put the smaller deck on.

    Also, a 60" will have a better cut, as the blades are longer, and the deck can handle more grass.

    If I was to HAVE to go with a 52", I'd DEFINATELY go with a LazerHp, as It's overall a much more compact machine.

    Why ya gotta bag?! Baggers suck! :)
