interesting.....Personally I would stay away from the 09s, after that good to go. Nothing really wrong with the 09s after updates are made but I feel little things will continue to go wrong.
I have owned two 52" 09s. Currently own 2011 versions of the 60", 52" and 48" and think they cut and operate great. It seems like the 48" with the 24hp engine just flies!
I would get the bigger engine with whatever deck size is chosen. The 48" is really a good size. Fits on smaller non gated properties and can do larger stuff.
