looked at this mower today was quoted 6900 out the door. Has the 20Hp. for those using it do you find the 20 hp powerfull enough.

I demod a 20 52 in some serious growth, and I was pretty impressed. It really tossed the grass, and did not bog much in some big thick grass. I would personally go with the 27 only because I would not want to wonder if the mower would perform better had I opted for the bigger engine in the first place. I think the design of the deck helps flow the grass so you can get away with less hp, and still have good results.
