    I'm thinking about replacing a 22HP Kawasaki (FD661D) with a bigger engine. I don't really want to take a step down in reliability or longevity.

    How do the Kawasaki FD, Briggs Vanguard and Kohler Command compare? I've heard the Kawasaki described as a 3000hr engine, but that sounds optimistic to me.

    I'm sure the Kubota is a heck of an engine, but it would be a pretty difficult retrofit. Any suggestions or recommendations?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Are you putting this engine in a ~2000 model Scag Turf Tiger?
