    Prices really did go up. The walk behind model I'm interested in purchasing went up $800 since last year. I also thought they had a 38hp Kohler for the Lazer. I saw a 34hp Kawasaki listed. No 38hp.

    34hp kawi is a weird number. I wonder if it's a fuel injected version of the 31.

    37 is an odd number also, maybe they like increments of 3!!!

    Couldn't agree more. If you can, BUY NOW. Prices are gonna get crazy. One catalog that my dealer gets for ordering parts from, released their newest catalog. They usually have dealer pricing in it, this one didn't. Reason: the prices go up too fast, so they can't list them or they would be the wrong price. This is what the company rep said.

    Most all makes went up but Exmark went up ALOT. Sounds like they are getting John Deere syndrome. Thinking thier sutff is worth more then it actuauly is.

    :laugh: Come to think of it, briggs had the fuel injected 34 hp vanguard motor right. That 34 got me thinking of our past threads on the briggs.

    This is probably a very good engine with better fuel economy and I know for a fact it is very strong. I personally don't want the added maintenance and upkeep of L/C when my A/C efi has been totally flawless.

    QUOTE:

    Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power is offering its first engine equipped with electronic fuel injection (EFI) in 2007. The new gasoline-powered EFI model is an extension of the company's Vanguard 3/LC 3-cylinder liquid-cooled commercial engine line. The Vanguard 3/LC EFI engine is capable of delivering increased fuel economy--up to 30-percent fuel savings--with increased responsiveness and drivability. A 32-bit engine control unit automatically adjusts engine settings in real time for quick, no-choke cold starts, and to compensate for altitude and environmental variables. On-board diagnostics provide quick, accurate troubleshooting. The Vanguard 3/LC EFI engine is rated at 34 gross horsepower.
