    As many of you know we are in the prototype stages of our new wb the Hustler GateMaster, as seen below.
    We were looking for a general concensus on engine choice(s) in the 15hp to 18hp range.

    Please use this poll and cast your vote
    Questions and comments welcome

    Thank you

  4. The poll wouldn't let me cast my vote so I will post it.

    Kohler

    Btw consider Kohler on more than just that mower.

    Honda would be my second choice.

    After riding all the mowers at the expo, it reminded me how much difference there is in the kawi. Its just more powerful. I vote Kawi.

    I would take Kohler next, but never a Honda for me in there larger motors. My knowledge of honda's larger motors would keep me from ever having one again. There small motors can't be beat though.

    Dose Kohler still have the tapping problem in their vertical shaft motors?? If so I'd go with Kawi.
