    Yikes, how can you comment on something like that. The chopper R&D guys must have been drinking beers when deep sea fishing and came up with the idea after looking at two outboard motors.

    Well they use to make them back in the 90's when the biggest engine you could get was 20hp and it was not enough. So then they put to 20's together to get 40hp. Generac might of discontinued the 33 hp engine and they might of did it for the same reason again. They also discontinued their diesels and they might of done it for those guys. I'd buy it if it was propane.

    Nope they still have the 33hp engine. Now they have a 40hp kholer engine for the other 74inch mower.

    Whats cool about it is you can run 1 or 2 engines. If 1 engine ever went down, you would always have an onboard backup, lol.

    I can't imagine what somebody would have to cut to need 54hp though. My racing quads, YFZ450s, only have like 45hp.

    Seriously, what's list? I do love those DC boys. That's swimming against the current eh?
