    Trying to decide which to buy looking for something smaller, already have 2 60" ztr's. I think I would rather have the 52" AS with 28 kaw but hurt it is hard to trim with or should I buy the 56" HP 27 kholer any suggestions

    The AS has a brand new engine that is unproven while the HP has the Triton which last year had some flaws. Tough decision. I'd stay away from both and put my money into something that I KNEW worked.

    More of a machine for the same money.

    That 28hp kawi is nothing special from Kawasaki, wouldn't worry about it.

    The 52 won't be the easiest thing to trim with compared to a 60, however, dont' forget the as has smaller tires.

    28 hp on a 52 inch deck, that is proven for the same money really is a no brainer........AS all the way.
