    For those who have the mower, do you feel the motor is powerful enough for the size of the mower? It takes a bit much for my commercial Honda to bog down.. But then again it's only 21"

    Compared to the Honda I think it is a toss up. If the honda is going to bog the 30 will and vice-verse. If Kawi came out with a 8-10 hp engine it would be great, however it would also increase the weight. I am loving the mower more and more all the time. I think it has the best cut out of all the smaller mowers.

    How is the bog factor vs the yBravo25...?

    For me the bog factor between last years TimeMaster 30 and yBravo25 with the Honda GXV 160 is a bit of a toss up as well...?

    Now I'm wondering if the Birgs Pro 190 with 8.75 gross torque is on par power wise... with the Kawi engines on the TurfMaster 30's...

    Virtually the same. The only thing the bravo has going for it is blade selection at this point. We will see when we get some crazy rain but at this point I don't think that will ever happen on the West Coast.

    My 36 wright stander bent both pushrods on one cylinder and since I plan on getting out of mowing I decided to try the 30". On days I have smaller lawns I am going to try to leave the trailer at home.

    Thanks for the info.. IMO If exmark built the 30" well, it's going to be a major game changer.. So many guys are cutting now-adays that you almost have to get a small push (for medium front yards) to set yourself apart from the competition... But the 21 was just too dang small now that I'm used to my 36".

    The mulch plug is a PITA to get out! Wrestled with it over 5 minute today. Was fine when new but now there is some grass slime in the chute, it binds up. My only complaint so far.
