What is your favorite (lawn mower size) small engine?
Kohler is my sentimental favorite, but for reliability, power, weight, noise, efficiency, etc, I have to go with Honda.
Kubota 3 cylinder diesel 16.5hp built for Jacobsen mowers. Those engines are tough as nails.
I choose the Kohler air cooled V-twin 20 hp specifically. That motor while underpowered in some applications, but is a real work horse, and virtually bulletproof. Since day one Kohler has been there powering my ZTR's, helping me to grow my business. I am now getting out of gasoline powered equipment where ever possible, going diesel.
I love my Kawasaki engines.
I Kawasaki engines on my three mowers, however the Honda's on my Little Wonder and Billy Goat are awesome. Effortless to start, quiet and little to no vibration.
The best small engine IMHO is any of the GX Series-Single Cylinder Engines.
How many of those do you have to run together to power a ZTR. Those are great engines for running pumps not ZTR's
Honda for almost everything i have.
The poll is for favorite small engine, so Honda is still my answer and since they make the GX up to a 13Hp in theory you could run 2 together and make 26hp and it would be stronger, more fuel efficient and definitely more trouble free with the two engines then any other manufacturers single engine.
But thankfully they make this http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/...omer driven-_-Recently Viewed-_-Category Page
