    guys I would like to know if the 19 hp kawi is plenty to mulch with most of the time or would you spend the money and upgrade to a bigger engine such as the 23 kawi.. Scag prices have gone a little high of late I think the 19hp 48 is around $7400 out the door and the 23hp 48 would be close to 7800 or so..

    The 23 hp engine option is a kohler..

    Here in Aussie they are over $10'000. You got them cheep. I was thinking about the new Comfort Z 36" that is coming out in the Zero turn series Ride ons. I have ben looking into them and they seem like a great move for Scag. They come with a 17 HP Kawaka motor. I think that I would go up one more to the 19Hp. If it wasn't expensive I would go for it.

    Spend the extra 400 for the bigger motor. You won't regret it. It's always nice to have to much power and throttle down, rather than having to little and complaining about it.
