Im getting ready to add another mower to the fleet. Its going to be another 60" z rider. My basic choices due to dealers is badboy,john deere, bobcat, husqvarna & Hustler. Most important to me is fuel. My 60" bobcat with the 23HP kawi has been awesome on fuel for the last 4 years. Its got over a 1K hours so I feel its time to make it a backup mower. I would say it gets right at an hour per gallon of fuel. I would like to find something similar. How are the bigger motors on fuel? anyone have a chart on fuel consumption with the newer motors? Back when I got this mower 4 years ago the biggest motor was the new 30HP big block vangard & the 31HP generac I was told by the dealer that the generac was the best on the market for fuel & power...best bang for your buck and he had never had to replace or do any major work outside of warranty covered work.
