    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".
