    Hustler Super Z 25 Kaw
    Exmark Liquid 22 Kaw
    Ferris 52 17 Kaw
    Wright Stander 15 Kaw


    I guess I would have to say I perferr Kawasaki!

    Better fuel economy, Not as loud.

    The kohler 27 air seams to be a good engine. Ive heard several local fellas like it. Its the same as the 25 with a different carb.

    My new mower has a 23 kaw on it. I had two scag wb. One had a kaw the other was a kohler. I always liked the kaw better. It has always been easier to start. It had been sitting for two months and it started on the first pull.

    I love both of them and have several of each can't complain with either one. I prefer kohler but thats more of a price issue then anything else.
