    What size mower should I buy the 48" or 54" cut? Do you think the bigger one will be too large for some small jobs. Will the benefits outweight this? The 54" is $1000 more.

    One advantage of a larger deck is the trim capacity.I have found the 54" is only $400 more.

    Walkbehind, Z or lawn tractor?? If its a walkbehind the 48" will work best.

    Depends mostly on the yards in your area. For me I need a 48 because some gates I can still get one through. For huge yards I would get a 52 or a 60
