    I am purchasing another mower, kinda of want another 72" xs but would like to have a mower large enough to hang with my 72" but also fit on my smallest trailer which is a 6 x 10, I spyed a 66" xs at my dealer yesterday and it had the 31hp like I have on my 72. If I get another 72" I'll have to get the 35hp because that is the only aircooled vanguard option they offer. I would not even consider the 29DFI or the 25 Kubota because of the awesome power of the big vanguards in an air-cooled package. So will the 6" loss of deck be noticeable? I'm thinking it would not be a noticeable difference, but there is a huge difference in a 60 and a 72 when you actully use them. So I really do not know.

    I would think you would notice it some. Going from a 72" to a 66" is a loss of 8%. The larger the area you're cutting, the more it will show up.
