FasTrak Honda or Kaw?

Not wanting to start a war...just looking for feedback.

Looking at a 54" FasTrak for the Spring.

Honda, obviously has the name with homeowners, but by specs has less Hp and lower torque than the Kaw.

Kawasaki seems to have more commercial experience and higher torque than Honda.

I just closed on a new house with 2.25 acres to mow. I know from my demos last fall that a 25hp 60" Z would mow my .75 acre yard in 22 minutes, pulling off the trailer to pulling back on...seems a little overkill. So I am going with a FasTrak. Just need to decide on an enging....any pros/cons with either motor?

Both engines are very good.
I personally would go with the Kawasaki.
Like you said, more hp more torque....

I have the 20/52 Fastrak and love it! It has plenty of power and I have 410 hours on it and it still runs as good as the day I bought it. Getting ready to move up to the Super Z 30/66 in a couple of weeks. You will be happy with any of the Hutler products.

Jason Little at Bobcat of Champaign would love to put you into a FasTrak with a 21hp Kawasaki 54" deck. They should have several for you to look at. In fact, they have the Super Duty FasTraks with the 25hp Kawasaki 54? in stock, too.

Check them out.
