Is hustler still offering the regular z with the 24 honda? Does this have the HD air filter on it. Also, have there been any problems with the honda engine? Does it have any specific advantages or disadvantages to the Kawisaki 25 or kohler 27? Thanks.

Yes we offer the 24 Honda with the 52" and 60" standard Z.
It does have the HD Donaldson filter system.
We have not seen any major issues with this engine in our application.
There are no advantages over any other engines out there, they are all great choices, it is a personal preference for every individual.
Of course the hp difference and torque difference is a reason to go to a larger engine, if it is what you need.

Hope this helps

PJ, would it be wise to assume that the 27 Kohler has more usable torque since it is higher in the RPM range? Thanks for all your help.
