    I am debating between a 48" Hydro vs. a 52" Hydo. Both units are Lesco. Not considering price, which unit would most landscapers prefer? I mow residential lawns. Is the 52" too bulky for residential? Since it's Hydro they have 0 Turn.

    I would think the 48" would be a little more productive and easier to get around tight places but since there isn't much difference in deck size it doesn't really matter that much. Ideally having a 48" and a 36" would be best. If your just doing residential I would get the 36" the 48" or 52" would be good for larger yards or commercial with big open areas.
