    I am running a 60 in lazer with a 25 kol and it has a ultra vac on it and it is plenty of power.

    Do people really like these big Briggs Vanguard engines?

    I have one with the 27 hp Kohler, I love it. Hardly EVER bog it down.

    I am trying my best to figure out a way to trade my 04 27HP in for a 07 35 Horse and not have to live in my new 8.5/20 Enclosed trailer. Its got to happen I just need to work on that thang (my wife). That Big Block (31hp) has me ruined.

    25hp will suffice. If you can afford to though, I would go bigger. 27 kohler, 28 kawi or my personal favorite, the 31 briggs vanguard!

    i just bought a lazer z as 60 with the 25 kohler, havent picked it up yet, but i am eagerly waiting to get it. its my first z . i also got it with the ultra vac and mulching kit. it should cut down my workload and give me a better cut than my toro 52 walk behind.

    25hp will be fine, I have both the 25hp and the 27hp version.

    Im very skeptic about the Briggs Vanguard engines, just seems a bit unsettling to me I guess. Reliablility wise... im not a Briggs fan.

    I bit the bullet and have had it over a week. 35 HP Vanguard is AWSOME. Do not be afraid. I had a pile of grass clipings that a previous company had left on the street that was 4 ft high and settled. When that XS finished there was only dust......................
