    OK, after being told a 27hp is too small for a 72" deck I demoed a 60" deck. Apparently this motor is bad out of adjustment. When mowing at speed and then slowing the motor and deck would loose massive RPMs and then regain composure.

    Is this a case of the governor being out of adjustment? The 25hp kawa on the JD 757 seemed to have more power.

    my friends exmark 27/60 has the same problem, it almost seems like it was gonna shut down for a split second, then it regains power. I'm curious about this myself.

    That's exactly it ryno. Surely this is not proper.
