    I think it would be a good combo for heavy use. Everyone seems to like the big block Briggs. Did you have any trouble with the Triton deck in those Indiana grasses? Did you get the update kit for your deck?

    The 31hp Vanguard is a power house. Trouble free in 800 hours.

    yes my deck has the upgrade. I have not used it yet with the upgrade. the only trouble I had with the triton was with heavy wet grass, about the same with the ultra cut

    Am I crazy or are the Vangaurds made by Mitsubishi? I pulled a generator out of a barn today that had a Vangaurd in it. Under the "Vangaurd" decal it had "by Mitsubishi"
    I was like: what the heck?

    I think these are made by or with the help of Daihatsu® . I'm not sure. They are superior to the old Briggs engines that you are probably thinking of.

    I too have an 06 Exmark with 60" deck and 27 hp, and I am trading up my old Toro for the 60" 31hp Vanguard in part because of all the positive response on this site.
