I have decided to buy a 52" exmark but have not made my mind up whether to purchase the HP or Full Size. I am leaning toward the HP with the 23 hsp Kohler or Kaw. It appears since it is 4.5 inches lower that it would handle slopes and hills better. Price is not an issue. I want the 52" because of it's maueverability in tight spaces. I'm a part-time solo operator. If a person is sold on the 52" deck, I really can't see why a person would by the Full-size over the HP. Please give me feed-back. I've already spoke with 65HOSS and i know his opinion but would also like to hear from other experienced operators.
