    Anyone out there bought one of these new units, and if so give us the scoop, I was checking the price on them and it was just 600.00 more to get the 27 liquid cooled on the 72 z's!

    I played with one of the 27hp kohler air cooled engines on a BLADERUNNER mower yesterday. Seemed strong and had good throttle response for a carbed engine!

    I bet that bad boy swallows up some gas, our 26 even with the fuel injecion is a sponge!

    We have a couple Kohler 25 Machines.

    What's even more thirsty is the Kawasaki 25 Air-Cooled Carbed.

    I have three Gravely 260 Z Machines, 2 Kohler, 1 Kawasaki.

    The Kawasaki has more power but it is rougher and is a fuel PIG!!!

    Bolt in swap, do-it-yourself in an afternoon, easy.

    Way more power.

    But, uses more fuel. Very thirsty, but that's a the price you pay.

    Burns more fuel than my John Deere 1600 with a 54 HP Yanmar 4-cylinder diesel. And the John Deere is cutting 11' of grass!!!
