    What in you'r humble opinons is the best all around deck size for 1/2 to 3 acre jobs (residental) and you can only have one machine. 48,52,or 60.

    If I could only take one mower with me it would be a 60" ZTR. It's a good all-around machine. Unless you have gates.;)

    I second that..... 60" ZTR. Drop the lawns that it doesn't fit into. If you are mowing 3 acre lots, 72" may be a better choice.

    60" ZTR

    ...and a 21" pusher for those narrow ditches and tight spots.

    Just kidding! :D
    60" unless you've got a lot of obstacles.
