The width of the cut is also important. A wide deck is good for large properties, but might not work in other situations. Storage of a larger machine is another thing to keep in mind.
The 54 inch mower deck in this example has anti-scalp wheels that prevent the deck from bottoming out on rough terrain. The anti-scalp wheels will adjust up or down, depending on the terrain. This prevents uneven cuts. A mower deck also has a rolled outer edge that protects the tractor from damage when bumping against obstacles such as trees and driveways.
