170# seems very heavy for a machine that is "man-handled" on turns.
I would not discount the use of this engine on this mower. The two blades are shorter than a 21" hand mower, requiring much less torque to keep then turning. I don't think the specs say, but I expect the engine is running at 3,600 rpm, not 3,000 or so for 21" mowers. There must be a drive train with belts that enable pulley size differences. I don't see any pics with the deck drive.
Exmark-man, ... any chance of a series of pics (>10) with the covers off, more detailed shots in and around this machine? The promotional stuff is way too vague.
