    I've been looking at the Fastrak and Mini-Z.

    The engine specs normally list the horsepower and max torque. Engine horsepower is generally defined at max rpm (about 3500) whereas max torque is seen around 2500 rpm.

    Question. What is the rpm of these engines during typical use when cutting grass? Is it closer to 2500 or 3500 rpm during general use?

    FasTrak engine speed is 3450
    Mini Z engine speed is 3600
    This is per our recommendation's.
    This is also what we set them at from the factory.
    Always mow with the engine at full throttle.
