    It would depend on how small some of your residentials are. If a 60" would still work with your residentials it would certainly save you some time. Basically I would just get whatever will work with some of your smaller yards. If it's 44", so be it. It will still go quick.

    There are just some things you have to consider. Are many of your lots fenced in? If so, how big are the gates? You don't want to get a brand new 50" ZTR only to realize it won't be able to mow half the backyards you service.

    Really, just think about it, and get the biggest one you can use. I wouldn't go past 60".
