    all things being equal do you think one or the other has a better cut? I mow about 5a.c. Iv'e demoed both but the 72" doesn't seem to throw clippings as far as the 60" deck thanks terry r

    Was the deck belt tight on the 72"? it should throw the grass as far as the 60".
    5 acres is not so big for a 60", do you have tight trimming? uneven terrain? these are some things to consider when looking at the 72" deck.

    some time soon they will be releasing a new deck 66 inch should be a good one,but if you are just cutting your own property the 60 is what I would get will be much less likely to scalp and is less money. It will be so much faster then what ever you have now. good luck
