    I have a question about fuel economy for my mowers. If I reduce my rpm on my Turf Tracer 52" with 23 kawasaki engine to 3200 rpm will that hurt the quality of cut? Also how much fuel could I save by doing that? Reading the specs of the motor the engine reaches maximum torque at 2400 rpm would should give me some room to save on fuel if I lower the rpm. Someone at Exmark please respond.

    breeden,

    In general, I would say that the lower RPM, the less fuel you will use. However, I can't tell you for certain what that may or may not do to your quality of cut. I'm not sure who could tell you how much fuel you will save. Maybe contact the engine manufacturer, or simply try it out yourself.

    Thanks,
    KC

    breeden,

    Try 949-460-5687. This should get you in touch with Kawasaki.
