I have the 23 Kawi on my 52 inch Lazer HP and it's got a lot of torque. Maybe a bit light on the HP yes but at that price I wouldn't be complaining, lol. If you want to put a PTO driven bagger on it, now that could be a problem. If you can't get the cash please message me and I'll drop what I'm doing and go get it wherever I am and whatever I'm doing...even give you a commission. Is it the Kohler or the Kawi on it...I think they both came in 23 now that I think of it.

is it a good deal?

yes.

is 23hp underpowered for a 60" deck cutting grass up north?

of course.

I've got a 60" with the 27hp kohler.

It's underpowered.

hp is a rating...has nothing to do with manufacture.

I have 3 kawi's as well...they are very nice...just really loud.

and Kohler's do not suck...it's the Briggs that aren't the best...and there still pretty dang good.

And I think everybody knows kawi's are the best.

yah, well power curve/torque is what it's really all about but can't get too picky with a used machine...if you want a machine all dressed up exactly how you like it, buy it new...used are what they are

Hey, I inquired about this mower last nite. Something seems fishy. It's been listed for over 2 weeks and it's still not sold...kind of surprising at that price. But more concerning is the reply I got that really didn't answer any of my questions and provided me with a shipping quote to "my address" even though I didn't say where I'm located and said that I wanted to pick it up in person. And they didn't provide me with a phone number either, even though I said I had cash in hand and wanted to come get it and left my number and asked them to call me.....I'd be really cautious of this deal!!!!!!! Didn't answer my question about them having a bill of sale to prove they were the rightfull owner either. I wouldn't be surprised if they ripped it off out of a homeowner's shed.

was it on craigslist??? Does it have a sunshade?? Sounds very familiar to a craigslist listing here. Think its bs.......I emailed about it also asking for the serial number and location so I can come run it.........no response.

yes, craigslist with sunshade against the side of what looks like a commercial/industrial building.
