    Any issues I should be aware of with in this engine? You guys running one, how's the power, reliability, gas consumption, etc.

    Thanks.

    I've had mine two seasons now and it's done very well. I think it's getting close to 300 hours.

    Very good power for my 60" deck. No problems at all. Honestly, I don't pay attention to "gas consumption" on any of my mowers.

    If you dont mind telling me, what mower is it going on? Some brads have had issues that others havent. But gas comsuption on the 31hp in "normal" mowing will burin around 1.6-1.8 GPH.

    I run a 72" Super Z with the 31 Kawi. 2.5 months and 120hrs and it runs well with no issues. Getting under 1.5 GPH mowing in a mixture of conditions.

    Mohustler, it's on a Wright ZK I'm considering. Is that one of the brands you know of that have had issues?

    Thanks for the feedback, djagusch. Sounds like you're getting pretty good GPH performance. Especially for a 72.
