Deck size choices by manufacturers

I've always wondered why so many brands of mowers will have both 48" and 52" decks available, which are pretty close in size, then not have a choice available in between 36" (too small for the wider areas) and 48" (barely too big for many standard gates). I guess one reason I've owned so many Toro mowers is that they have had the 44" available, which is a good compromise.

My 42'' tripple spindal ZTR is the happy medium for me. I think the 42''s are a very pactical, important size that more MFG's should offer.

Good post Bruce.

I have a 42" White ZTR that will squeeze through many back gates. Makes it nice instead of using a 21".
