Any guys know of any hints for running a 61" 25 hp kawi?? Blade setups,etc just any hints past the basics of mowing with a zero turn. And do you guys always choke your 25 hp kawi every time starting up.Today it was over 70 and I had to choke it every time I started it.Maybe its just the engine.:confused:

That is just normal for the Kawasaki, sometimes even in the summer if they cool down during lunch we have to choke ours at the first accounts after lunch.:cool:

I use Exmark Highlift blades on my Cub. It works well with Doubles. I find Gators a terrible blade for this machine. I don't need to choke mine except first start in the morning, and after lunch on occasion. Just get lot's of practice...you will enjoy it.

Buy a couple extra belts. Especially the drive belt for the hydro's, when it goes, you will be happy you had a spare.
