    Just checking to see if anyone else has ever down sized mower
    size. We had 2- 52" Z and a 62" Z and found that the 62" was just to big for the properties we have. Most of lawns are 2 acres or less tightly landscaped. Our equipment list now is 1 Toro 52"Z, 2 Exmark 52" Lazer HP, and 17/48 Hustler Hydro Walkbehind.

    I downsized, I bought a Husky 6126 zero turn, and it was way to big for the places I needed to go. I went to a Walker with a 48" deck, the best move I could have made!

    36", 48" and at biggest 52" not bigger or smaller than these, as lawns getting smaller or staying current size. I found that 36" in combination with 48" or 52" are the best for every occasion.

    I have a 42" ZTR that does great on smaller or tight properties. A mix of large and small equipment can increase productivity.
