This is the FX line. They range from 16hp-37hp I believe.

This correct. They have 4 different fx sized engines. 999cc which have 34/37hp, 852cc 31/29/27hp, 726 cc 26/24/22hp, and 603cc 20/18/16hp. It appears the 999cc engines have had the issues. The 999cc also have a dfi option.

I'm thinking this is enough info alone, for me to stay away from the 2011 Super Z with the 37 hp Kawasaki...

Actually Toro never had the 37 hp option, but they did switch from the 34 Kawasaki to a 34 Kohler - again not a good sign for Kawasaki.

They did have the 37 Kawi over here as far as I know.
I have also been told (by a very good source) that it was also about some of the components Toro were using. Just couldnt handle the torque of the 37 Kawi. Hydro system if I remember correctly being one of the issues.

Oh okay, here in the states I don't believe they ever did, but companies do different things in different markets.

when i bought my g3 the biggest motor i could get was the 34.that was the fall of 09.i now have over 700 hrs on it . no engine problem yet .i do use synthetic oil,and i try to keep up on the oil changes. i read on here that someone said that toro was switching from kal to kohler. i hope this is not true.i was going to buy another g3 this summer.i was going to get a 29 horse kal. the 34 is a gas guzzler.but it really has power.

Only the 34hp engine is going to Kohler. They still have the 29 hp Kawasaki.

glad i got mine when i did.its great to know that you have the power when needed with 34 horse but definatly every day mowing 29 horse will be fine. the toro i had before had a 27 kohler.it bogged down in alot of different occations,but i really noticed the gas difference
