What tip of Engine is best for a 54" Exmark WB?
B/S or Kawa or Kol?
hmmm what a question...... better question might be, what size.
(and that would depend on many variables, too)
Kohler, Kaw. and the B.S. Vangaurd all good.
Fine what size?
I have a new Grasshopper with a 25hp Kohler. I have been satisfied with it thus far. However, I am a Kawasaki man thru and thru. This Kohler has been a good one but I only have 25 hrs on it to date. It has sufficient power for a 52" deck but back fires every time I shut it down. Called the dealer and he said to stop running it at idle before killing it. It seemed to work and it is a fix for now.
I personally like all the HP I can get, but when the maint. cost, fuel cost, ect. is figured in, I'm not sure if there is 1 right answer.
So put like a 25hp on tit?
I like Kawa but I want your input.
blades of steal it is because there is excess fuel in the exhaust port and it has explodes when it get the last spark in it you should always let an air cool sit like 1 min on lowest idle before shutting down its a good way to blow the valve apart.. usually through the head...
oops double post *edit*
Oh..........a TRICK question! You got me there........ Exmark doesn't make a 54".
(regardless, for belt drive I would say 19HP, for the big increase in torque over a 17HP, or 23-25 for a hydro)
I meant to say a 52" Exmark.
