    I demoed this mower today and very impressed.I currently have a tt 31hp vanguard runs like a champ 1635 hrs on it does not use a drop of oil dont get me wrong im a service freak it gets it every 40 hrs.Any ways dealer had it in wanted me test it out first thing I did took it through 2 foot high and very thick grass set the mower on 4in did not labor at all very responsive specially for 10cc pumps.Will buy for 2nd mower.These vaguard engines in my opion is with out a doubt the best.

    Yes more torque than a 27hp kohler.

    Well I hope your right about the 31 Vanguard being reliable. I love the power but I'm not 100% sold on the long term reliability but I hope your right. If not I guess I'll re-power. I bought it cheap enough to get a spare engine if needed.

    Ive had in the past on tts 25kohler 27&29 kawas none of them hold a candle on the 31vanguard Im sure the 35hp would be a monster and by the way I get more gph on the 31 than I did on the 29dfi.

    Sounds like a pretty sweet mower. I've never driven a Scag before. I'd like to sometime.
