    Has anyone out there had any problems with the 22hp Kawasaki engine,liquid cooled. I know of a few that seem to be losing coolant,one of them had the head gaskets replaced. Thank you.

    I bought a 23 air cool. Because one mechanic advised me that there might be more maintenance to the liquid cool. I was worried too about getting a water cooled gas engine. Thought it might over heat and lose coolent. I am waiting on the deisel exmark when i buy another one. my liquid cooled Kubota deisel hasnt had too many problem unless the screen gets clogged while bushhogging then It over heats.

    i have a 25 aircooled on my 62inch z master...runs smooth as hell and has lots of power. wjy spend all that extra money on a liquid cooled? by the way.. today wasmy first day of mowing...that machine rules! i used it on some hills that i was wearying about and it was quite stable- i was very surprised. besides that i got about 5 diffrent compliments just tody alone on the beutiful new machine and how nice it cuts. keep me updated on what you deside
