    Currently I mow a couple smaller HOA's with a 52" scag hydro and sulky. I'm prett beat by the end of the day so I'd like to upgrade to something a little more efficient and also easier on my body. I'm wondering if I will gain any production switching to

    48" or 52" stander or 48" ztr

    Most of the area is pretty open and flat and I do have another hydro walkbehind to use on the really hilly areas that a ztr wont work. Any real world experience you can share?

    Get a 60" Zero Turn. That'll really improve your time.

    I'd really like a 60" but I think it would be a little big for some of this stuff. That, and I cant seem to find a good used 60" mower in my price range.

    From what I can tell, you would do best with a larger ZTR. :)

    If you have a 48" or 52" walk behind, you should be set with a 60"
