Exmark Lazer size question

I have been looking at Z's lately, and decided I will by and Exmark when and if i purchase one. My question is that It would be used mostly on residential yards less than 15k square feet. I was thinking about the 44", but the 48 or 52" may be about the same. We have a lot of hills in alabama so not all yards are flat. I just thought the 44 may be easier to maneuver in hilly, tight spaces. Any thoughts from experience would be appreciated.

52 HP can hold hills. I mean hills. Anyway...the 52" is perfect for residential lawns. I'm mostly in residential work and I've bought 2 52" hp's over the last few years.

I say always go with a 60"- it has a wider wheelbase to handle hills, and being a zero turn it has the same maneuverabilty.
Always go exmark. the sixty inch cuts much more area divided out over a day/week

War Eagle! I have found that all z mowers hold a hill to an extent, but when you get into a full size mower(lazer z, turf tiger, john deere 737/757) it has better traction.

Thanks guys. I'm not overly concerned about the hills. I have a wb and push if i can't ride. I'm just trying to see what size woud be the best for Residentials with small hills and tight areas 44, 48, or 52.

I have a the 52" hp and love It. I would say if you have a wb and a push to do the area's that "might" not be able to be done with the z, go with the 52". Plus resale will be alot easier with a 52" vs a 48" especially in a Z.
