    I'd say a 52'' at most...

    I'd say whatever you can afford and what will be beneficial in the future of your business...

    52 would be more versatile. I use mine on lawns that only require 4 passes. Job pays $25 every week. 6 minutes of work, gate down, to gate up! I also use mine to mow 4 acres of property. Very versatile mower deck size, if you ask me.

    52 is probably best unless you do a lot of larger mowing. I have a 60" gravely pm260 and it works fine, but on some a 52 would be better and faster. I also do some large properties that the 60 is way faster.

    Get a good mower and the size isn't such a big deal.

    DEMO both and see. Demo on your accounts.

    I agree, a 52" mower does seem to be just about ideal for just about everything from postage stamps on up to props around 3 acres or more..Then I'd go straight for a 72.. The problem for me is, Gated prop's that anything bigger than 32-36" won't fit because of gates.. Gates are definately the spoiler...

    If all you intend to ever do is 1/4 acre and smaller than a 52 will be fine. If you think you may get into some larger properties later than get a 60.
