    I am looking at the mini fastrak. The local dealer tells me that you can't get a 2 cylinder for the mini, but the Honda 16Hp is shown in the brochure & on the website. Is it no longer available? Also, is it worth the extra $$ for the 2 cylinder Honda?

    The Mini FasTrak has a 16hp Honda engine on the 36 and 42 inch models.
    Your dealer may be mistaken, or he may be telling you this because he cant get them, these are 2 very popular models and some warehouses throughout the country are out of them.
    We are building them as fast as we can.
    In my personal opinion it is worth the extra $'s for the Honda, but the Kohlers are just as reliable, and cost less money....

    Go Honda... In the long run you'll get your money back. Plus it's a smoother and quieter engine.
