    I only have about an acre of grass, with some tight areas to negotiate...so I opted for 54" deck. 60" certainly is nice especially if one is using wheel weights which increases the width footprint. I don't think 54" would get close enough for edge trimming with wheel weights.

    Good poll psrumors! Interested in pending results

    Our place has about 1 acre to mow and there are some tight spots. The dealer let me demo my 1026R with the 60" and it almost fit every where I needed it. Fot a little extra clearance I took the shoot off when I put my mulch kit on and the 60" fit with no issues after that. What a great deck! The extra width helps get close to things when the tractor would otherwise be too close for comfort.

    One other thing to consider is how flat you lawn field is. The more bumps and humps the more likely you will get an uneven cut with a larger deck. Smaller decks tend to follow the contours better.

    Got the 60" as with 3.5 acres of almost all grass I was trying to cut down my mowing time. Only have a few spots that it would have been nicer to have the smaller deck.

    Like the cut and no issues so far.

    1.5 acres here and went with the 54". Prefect size for me, as if I went with a 60" I would not be able to fit between the house and fence, or the well and tree.

    I went for the 60" , man it will cut some grass, great machine. I have always had a 54" and thought I would try the 60". Have not regretted getting the 60" ,heard all kind of horror stories of uneven cuts, scalping and everything else. Today did the first mowing of season , mowed close to 3 hrs I seen maybe 3 places of a small area of scalping , maybe 3"x 6" at the very most. This is in our back yd ,if lucky maybe 2 people besides me will see this the whole summer.
    I can't say how the 54 " would do on the 1026r , but with the 60 , today and most of last summer only ran engine at 25-2900 , maybe one time last summer I ran the tractor at 3200. I can see no difference in cut .

    Have fun and be safe !!!
