Since everyone one has their opinions about each brand, I will not mention the mowers, only the differences in them. Both are pretty much identical. Both are 48" 21 hp. Mower A has a Kawasaki with a two stage filter. Mower B has a Vanguard with no two stage. Mower B also has standard headlights and a striping roller. It's optional on mower A. Mower B is around $200-$250 cheaper than mower A. Based on those comparisons, which mower would you get. Would the engines be the deciding factor or would the additional standard equipment and cheaper price make the decision?
