The Vanguard is balanced and has lightweight pistons, that creates more power and torque and they engine is smoother.... I don't know if it has as much power but there have been two or three people tell me that have run the 37 kawasaki and the 32 vanguard that the vanguard felt as strong or stronger.... I can't say becuase I haven't ran both but I have the 37 DFI and it has plenty power but its a gas hog... But in all honesty I'm comparing that to my Ferris 2000 with a 25 kawasaki.... So it's not a fair comparison with the 3100 having bigger pumps for the 37 kawasaki to run and bigger tires to pull.... And the 3100 seems to have a higher blade tip speed... I know the pulleys on the deck are smaller than my 2000s deck pulleys....
