I don't know what fuel cost in your area but it is high here in Kentucky. Those big engines will drink you dry. Also check and see where Kawasaki's are made, here in America. The EFI is not what it is cracked up to be, you have to keep them dry.

We need more power. Especially in the SuperZ. Briggs Big Blocks would be nice. Would love for the engine manufacturers to make these new 30+hp engines FUEL INJECTED. Once you go EFI, you don't want to go back to carbs.
You need different wheel motors, larger pipes and hoses, more GPM flow.

The Kohler is still available in the FasTrak series.

I saw a Country Clipper Boss tonight with a 37hp Kawasaki and 72 inch deck. No keys in it though, so we couldnt fire it up.

I have a super Z 60 with a 24 hp honda and a demo 26 hp kohler with a 54 super z, the honda will use 2.2354 gallons less a day then the honda in the same conditions, and I believe have more lugging power. that is a savings of $175.00 a day.....

Yes but only 1 option-19 hp w/48". It justs seems that the OTHER engines are getting more options that the Kohlers. I have a 20/52". LOVE LOVE LOVE that mower- As I have said in other posts --there is no reason that mower is still going. It has went thru heck and back. It is what has sold me on Hustler's. My new Super Z 30/60" is everything I knew it would be but the FT earned it's spot.
