    Almost bought one.

    Got Hustler instead.

    Comparing the two I saw the Hustler as very minimal maintenance. The Tank had a lot of adjustments that looked like they needed tweaking.

    I assume my employees are retards, and am delighted when they're not.

    LOVE my choice, the cut and operation is great.

    23 HP Kawasaki -- sounds like you have gotten the 48" or 54" Tank.
    Take care of it (reg. maintenance) and it will take care of you.

    I have the 54" Tank -- 06 model.

    I'm seriously considering buy a Tank with 54" cut next week. I was told I could get either a 23 hp Kawasaki engine, or a 27 hp Kohler. Which engine will hold up the best, and would the 23 hp be large enough for the 54" deck? Thanks,

    The brochure I have only lists the 27 kohler as well, but the dealer told me either one. He has to order it in, so I guess I would know for sure then. Same price in TN as well. :)
