    Right now I am using a Craftsman 42" deck and I want to step up to a commercial mower. I was thinking about the Exmark 48" TTHP, but I'm wondering if going down to a 36" TTHP would still be more productive than the Craftsman? Will the 36" be faster than the 42"? As of now I don't have that many gated properties but you never know what this year may bring. Most properties around here are going to be less than one acre. Just need to know which one ya'll would start with. Thanks in advance.

    The 36 would be faster. If you can afford the 48 go for it and just buy a regular pushmower for gated yards.
