    A board member has a 13hp kawa Ferris WB, 48" hydro for sale,i assume single hydro...2002 model

    IS 13hp enough? seems like it might be underpowered to me...

    And what would seem to be a fair price? I thought 1500 or so would be about it...but what do I know....

    I have the 48" wb with the 13hp and it has never let me down and I have mowed some fairly tall grass. I'm only about 150lbs but it pulls me around on the sulky no problem. I got mine off ebay with only 50 hours for $1800 and love it for the money. Besides, why are you mowing really tall grass in the first place? If this mower would ever let me down when mowing, I probably shouldnt be mowing that yard in the first place.

    I would rather have at least 15hp-17hp for a 48" walkbehine, 13hp seems like a good engine for a 36" but not sure about 48". Is the 13hp a v-twin?? or single?
