 60" vs. 72" mmm on B2910

New to this but have enjoyed and already profited immensely from these discussions.

I will shortly buy a B 2910 to replace my B 2400, which has been excellent (and which I will be selling - only 320 hrs). I have 84 acres in northern Virginia and I will get a 60" light-duty rotary mower, probably Woods or Bush Hog, for the long-grass/moderate-weed fields that I mow less often. I have an M 5030 with a serious Bush Hog for the really heavy stuff (saplings and stout brush), but want the convenience and safety of HSD for those less often mowed but still not too challenging areas. In other words, it is the desire to have that 5 foot light duty cutter that has pushed me to the B 2910.

For where I need to have the grass looking good, the 10 or so acres around the house, I use the 60" mmm on the B 2400.
It lets me get into the tight places, around trees, etc. But the B2910 is about 7 inches wider than the B 2400, and I was wondering if the wheels will get in the way of accomplishing with it what I can now do with the B 2400. In which case, it might make more sense to go with the 72" mmm since the 72" mmm would reach out well enough beyond the wheels -- although I would give up some maneuverability in terms of overall width. (The 72" would run about $600 more as well -- not an insignificant consideration.)

I would love to hear from you guys. Have to make my mind up in the next few days.

I would go bigger if you have that much grass. You might have trouble in small spots. But worth the extra money. One of my neighors has a L2600 with a 72" on 1.5 acres. (he used to own a house with 16 acres which he cut 13 every week) It takes him longer to stop trun switch from forwards to reverse, trun again and go forwards. At the end of each pass, than to make the next pass. He can do his lawn in 32 minutes.

Howdy neighbor. I live in Amissville, just up the road a ways from you.

I agree with the previous statement. For 10 acres, go with the 72".
