I mean if the honda was three hundred bucks more than the kawi I would pay extra for the honda. Nothing against the kawi either, we love em, I have quite a few of them just love honda.
The subaru's seem to make good power for their size from what ive seen. Very similar to the hondas. They are smooth and start easy. Love the subaru on my Snowblower. I know i would order in a honda or subaru premium engine option on a few of the models kept on hand. They seem to draw a crowd. I almost took on Yard Shark mowers because of...
1. The honda engine option
2. built about 20 miles away
3. sits low and handles well with a pretty good cut as well
Only thing that held me back is the distributor i wasnt too sure about them. nice guy but all the mowers had to ship to Illinois i believe then back to me and parts came from Illinois as well. Nothing could be picked up from the mfg.
