    What would you choose? 2002 72" Lazer liquid cooled 27 Kawi zero hours (still in crate) or 2004 72" Lazer 27 Kohler 19 hours. Both of these mowers come with full warranty and are the same price.

    I would go with the kohler. We have a kawi. on a 48" exmark, in the summer it starts just fine but once it starts getting cold out its very hard starting. Something to think about living in mn.

    There are several enhancements in the mower itself between those years.

    For that reason alone, I'd go with the '04.

    Either engine will do the job. Both are very similar in power. You'll have a significantly lighter machine with the A/C Kohler.

    Both engines are maxed out as far as power-per-inch of cut. Neither will do all that well in a weeks worth of heavy Spring growth. I strain my 27LC Kawi with only 60" of cut.
