Well we got a new Dixie, We got the Flatlander with the honda 24 hp It lack the Extra Engine oil cooler Amsoil filter, and Turbo pre cleaner, but it has just as much power as my 25 Kohler, if not more. Don't have double blades and stripe kit on it yet either. I feel it has more power than than my kohler, right now , but I feel that my kohler is low on power right now for some reason. I am taking it back to the dealer to get it looked at but it could be my imagination, and the honda has more guts than it. I feel Honda engine are great on Generators sp... so we will run it till it blows. I will let you guy know how it works out. the throttle cable broke off at the lever same as my 2001 XF2500 The honda as a real throughty sound.
