    The AS is a full size (frame)ZTR. It has the Ultra Cut deck and would need to be 60" to have much trim ability.

    The HP is a smaller frame ZTR and the deck will extend more for trimming and the 56" deck I believe is the new Triton deck (not the Ultra Cut).

    If you cut smaller property's I would lean toward the HP.

    For larger property's I would lean toward a AS with the 28 Kaw and 60" deck. Any smaller of a deck on the AS will limit your ability to trim.

    You have to also consider if you want the new Triton deck available on the HP or the tried and true Ultra Cut on the AS series
