    I am on the verge of buying a tiger cub with the 52" deck and 24 horse honda to replace one of my 48" ulitimate walk behinds, my question is this.............. will i be happy with the honda engine and the mower in general. Iam so looking forward to being able to sit down on some of the larger lawns ( 2 and 3 acree lawns ) and be able to rest a little ( iam a solo lco) instead of riding on the velke and wearing my legs out .

    Talked w/ my dealer when I bought my Tiger Cub about the Honda engines. He said they're nice but parts will run you more for them and they are relatively new to the game as far as Z engines so I went w/ the Kaw

    I have a Honda 24hp on a Hustler Z 60" and it does a good job. It should do well on a 52" also. I can't speak for the mower though, never owned a Scag.

    The cub is a great machine. The honda and Kawi are great motors. I got the kawi. though, it does have more torque than the honda and they have always been great to me. Either motor, you are getting a great machine.

    there is alot of pressure washers out there that run those hondas at full tilt for hours on end and get exposed to lot's of moisture while they're running. though i've never owned one i'd love to try one.
     
  10. I would go with the 23 kawi over the 24 honda .

    The bigger honda's are gutless dont have the torq of the kawi .

    I had the tiger cub 52 with the 23 kawi it has all the power you need.
    The machine cuts really well.
