Food for thought:<p>If it is hard to get parts for the Kaw. then I would get the Briggs. I run a Briggs on my walkbehind and it is doing just fine. But find out about the parts and the service. Some people won't even work on a Kaw. Briggs is good so I would say go with the one with the best warrenty, parts, and service.<p>GLC<br>

My pesticide application vehicle also is a<br>44&quot; mower I use for &quot;trimming&quot;. It has a new<br>12.5 hp Tecumseh and really powers the deck <br>nicely.<p>If you go to the following website<br>http://lgwhse.com/lgwhsecgi/webc.cgi/tmidsize.html?sid=21VUA-C<p>It shows that a 16hp B&S is $200 LESS than<br>a 12.5 kaw.<p>The 16 hp B&S must be a 1999 leftover.<br>Per Toros website they do not offer a<br>B&S engine for 2000. See:<br>http://www.toro.com/landscape/proline/gearfspecs.html<p>You can buy a new 48&quot; Toro/eXmark with a 14hp kohler for $2250<br>Why spend more for a smaller deck?

I have kholer, robin, and vangards, And all three of these engines are well made all from japan. In fact i have had no problems from the vangards, and also have good luck with the robins. Keep preventive maintance on a regular bacis and these engines will treat you right. I hope to be buying the new scag sabre tooth tiger with the 31hp vangard liquid cooled this month. Around here exmark, scag,and greatdanes are the choice for most commercial cutters. I have heard very good things about the kaw-engines,but most of the equipment out there is as good as you are to it.<p>----------<br>Mark's Mowing Service<br>
