No ones debating hp or t I answered his question, like I said I had problems with the Vangaurd, I have one on the shelf right now so my choice for my application is the Kawi, cheaper, does the job, burns less fuel, probably not necessary for his application but only he can answer that. None of the companies here use that much power just not practical.

You told me to re-evaluated my methods, when in fact you don't have situations that would truly test the 27hp kawaski's ability? yet your comfortable criticizing a 35hp Big Block. It's safe to say a 27HP Kawaski is a great engine, but not the best or most powerful option, depending on application, or as you say "re-evaluate your methods". Depending on deck size , and hydropump set up a 27hp engine could be short on hp/torque

"Reevaluate your methods" was a general term it wasn't directed at you, if it was I would of said "sparkplug reevaluate your methods" and their you go again assuming you know what the hell your talking about, STOP assuming you know my business you have absolutely no clue what I ran,run or have experience with, give me a break! It seems you "assume" nobody knows anything about hp and t I hate to bust your bubble but its not rocket science.

Look I didn't mean to get so defensive but you were putting words in my mouth in all your rebuttals. We all have our opinions on exactly that "our own applications and experiences" no hard feelings

It would also help if he had listed the model he is getting and any bagging or mulching he plans to do with it.

I have both a Vanguard and a kawsaki and they both seem to work great for me. the vanguard is only a year old though. but I have always been wanting the Kawasaki LC but can't afford it.

They also own Guardian generators. Used to be owned by Generac, Me thinks. That's why you don't see the Guardian Motor in The Guardian generators anymore. All Briggs now, and I'd rather have a Generac/Guardian motor for a stand-by generator.

I thought Snapper was owned by MTD.
