    Unfortunately, the 23 hp that we had on an 60" Ultra-cut XS blew. Why, I do not know. However, the thought crossed my mind, if I have to replace the engine, why not upgrade to a higher hp. It is been a bit underpowered during the Spring cuts. Any suggestions? The unit has 800 hrs on it and the rear tires need replacement.

    Buy a new mower, or repair? I am inclined to repair, but I do not have the estimate as of yet because of the holiday.

    The unit is 4 years old. The model number is LZ23KC604AS. Engine #?. Unfortunately at this time the unit is at a dealer who just became an eXmark dealer. 5 minutes away. Time will tell. Thanks.
