    It should have a 23hp Kawi.

    If it has the welded deck... great machine...

    If it has the stamped deck... I dunno?... Buyer beware?

    If it stamped it will have a curved deck shell. If it is welded it will be more square and also WELDED.

    I dont know if the other posters reason for stamped deck is the same as mine but mine has a stamped deck and I keep bending it when 1 side gets into like a ditch it gets bent in, the welded ones are stronger

    Stamped decks are thinner and easier to bend.
