Help choosing between GT48XLSi and GT52XLSi...

I have it narrowed down to these two. I have 1.7 acres of land to cut and a Cyclone Rake to haul. I was planning on getting the 48" because I can get it for $2,999 which seems like a great price. However, my wife said, "Do you want bigger in case we get a bigger lawn in the future?" Well, I hadn't really thought of that.....The 52" is $3,499.

My question is, should I get the 52" just "in case"? Are there any benefits/disadvantages to the larger deck? It's $500 more but if it makes a big difference and there's no downside then maybe I'll consider it.

Is there anywhere the 52" won't fit or will be awkward on your property?
....said the guy with 500 trees on about 1/4 acre of mowed grass with a 60" deck on a SCUT.... Believe me, I know awkward.
Then go with the 52. I don't think you're as likely to regret it as you would be if you got the 48".
I don't know many people that think "I wish I got the smaller one."
