I use 52's and last month I had to use a loaner and it was a 61. It was a big time saver. However I never thought I would be saying this but I was not happy with the quality of the cut. On uneven ground and on slopes it scalped a lot. Now I am back to where you are. I want to go with the 61 but I'm not sure.

Get a 61" Ferris with suspension. They don't scalp.
