    Faster at what ? ..... Top End ? ..... Area Mowed ?

    The 72" 35 h.p. mower would be faster.

    There are a lot of limitations here, if you were looking at the same make/ model the top speed would be the same because that is that is limited by the hydros and tire size. If you are looking at speed you can cut then you will be able to cut faster with the 52'/27 because of more HP on a smaller cut. But you should almost be able to cut the same amout of area in the same amount of time with the 60 as the 52 even more so if the grass is not thick.

    I meant time wise.

    I would think they would both break even on lawns under an acre
