    I have a decision to make. Im getting another walk-behind but I dont know what size to get. I mow lawns ranging from 1/4 acre to over 2 acers of grass. I have a 36", so thats great for small lawns and some back yards, but I just cant make myself choose between a 52" or a 60" turf-tracer. What do you all think? Thanks.

    Well, we have a 52" and love it. It is very fast, and cuts a lot of grass per day. If you can use the 60" on most of your lawns by all means. The 52" works well for us, because we can get it in a lot of the oversized gates. Unless you have double gates yo are not gonna get a 60" in a gated yard. Do you have a lot of gated yards?

    For a walk-behind I would look at a 52" Turf Tracer or 52" Ferris DD.

    I have been running almost all 60's for a few years and I am switching to a couple 52's this season. I think they are a little more versatile but if most of your properties are in the 1/2 acre or larger then the 60 may be a better way to go.
