One of the local dealers told me that it was still only a 6.5 hp motor and probably wont do any better than the timemaster. I ended up buying a Toro Commercial 36" WB. Unfortunately that was a jump from $1,000.00 to $4150.00. OUCHHHHHHHHHH! But at least it works and cuts like a charm......
My sentiments exactly. My Timewaster has no power. The Kawasaki engine is for longevity/durability only. It actually makes less power than the B&S. You can look at the power curves from each manufacturer and verify for yourself by visiting their websites. I am a homeowner and can't ditch my Timewaster fast enough.
