Kind of off topic here but I wouldn't go with a 52" deck. The tires stick out right to the edge of the deck and it makes it very hard to get the overlapping right. Overlap too much and your ruining your last stripe, not enough... Obviously you leave uncut strips. With the 60 or 61 the deck sticks out farther then the tires by a good bit and makes the stripes look better. Thats just what I have found from running a 52 turf tiger.
