I like it, it has amazing fuel consumption, can mow for days without filling up. It is however alittle under-powered, and could use a few more hp.

Would you rather have the Kohler EFI or the Kawasaki carb model? Meaning, is the extra power worth the higher fuel consumption? Looks like most of what you cut is like what we cut here.

Well i own both actually, my other z-mower has a kawi on it, with that said I'd pick the EFI just for the fuel savings alone.

I'd rather have power at the cost of a little more gas, but I hear some people say that the Kohler is way short on power, and some people say it's fine on a 60. I can't decide and the dealer can't get a 31 Kawasaki demo for me to try.

I'm looking at Gravely stuff, same drivetrain as the eXmark's though.

I wouldent say the efi kohler is "way short on power" but at times when the grass is really high and wet in the spring time it could use alittle more power. For everyday mowing its Perfectly fine on power.
