    I have a 17hp Kaw that is a great engine but I wouldn't get one on a mower that a 19 or 23 is available on. I have a 44" and the 17 gets it done but I wouldn't want the engine on anything bigger.

    I would like to try out one of the 36" standers with the 17 though... I bet that little thing moves...

    Not all of them. There are two 52" Toro Z's sitting at my dealer with 19's and they both have the same pathetic filter my 17 has...
