You won't notice much of a difference. If you know how to run the machine well, you'll save some time with a 52.

The biggest thing you will notice between the two deck sizes will be the amount of trim side you have. The 52" deck will give you a little more of a trim side, but only by a couple inches. And even when cutting the 52" deck won't save you THAT much time over the 48", at least not on most accounts.
