    In a perfect world I would get a 72'' so I would be finished faster. But since it's not perfect I have a 33'' 48'' and a 60''.

    I have 2 52s and a 61. 52s are nice because the 61 won't fit everywhere

    I like having a full truck of different sizes to get the best size for the yard.

    It seems that a 52"-56" deck size is the "Sweet Spot" for cut quality and typical available horsepower. IMHO a 52" will cut nicer in more situations than a 60" all things being equal. There's not a lot lost from a 60" in productivity but an advantage gained in accessibility with the smaller deck size. Bigger is not always better for a man and his equipment ....

    Tight in my area, 33's are the bomb!
