    The Honda 16hp is a commercial grade v-twin overhead cam engine, it will be a great choice if you want to spend the extra $'s.
    The Kohler is a great choice too, we would not offer it if we did not do our homework on it, but it is a residential grade single cylinder, compared to the Honda being a commercial grade engine.
    It comes down to preference and your budget.
    Where are you in Western Mass? have you gone to our website and used our dealer locater? it will give you your 5 closest dealers,all of which are able to take care of you.

    What about on the Fastrack? Is the Honda engine really $500 better than the Kohler? They both are covered by the full 4 year warranty right?
