He is actually more correct. Kawasaki is labeling the engines the actual hp. Most companies are label the torque and the hp is 2-3 lower. Also, 27 hp will be plenty fine. All of the mowers from 5-8 years ago only came with the kawi 23 or 25 which was actually 21-23hp with 61 inch decks and they did perfectly fine so more hp is more marketing and over kill plus use quite about more fuel.
