The deck size, often described as cutting width, is important to consider when selecting your mower. 16-inch decks are perfect where access is difficult, where you have to lift and carry, or for small lawns. You’ll find deck sizes on walk-behind mowers all the way up to commercial-grade 24-inch however the most popular deck sizes for home-owners are 18” or 19”.
Remember too that the wider the cut the less time you spend mowing as fewer runs over the lawn are required.As a rough rule of thumb the wider the deck the higher the price so select the model that strikes the right balance between your needs and your budget.
