    Price-wise....does it cost more than the EFI units? Like say on a 54" or 60" deck.

    I bet they sell for close to msrp due to high demand. Makes you wonder why a manufacturer would put certain motors on a mchine (30 kohler) when they have to discount it by $1000 or more just to sell it. A 31kawi can't cost hustler $1000 more than a 30 kohler.

    I dunno man, 30hp small block vs a 31hp big block? Plus Hustler buys the Kohler in much larger amounts at a time I bet.

    looks like the Kawi unit on a 60" deck runs $9000. Not too bad!

    I want a 8.0 liter direct port injection quadraturbo 64-valve DOHC independent coil W-16 1,000+ hp's in mine,
    so I can mow waist high grass at 120 mph's without hesitation or stumble. On that note make the deck a 240" flex
    with a rough blade tip speed of around 40-80,000 fps, and sustainable 6,000 rpm's, ergonomically, of course.

    Then I'll write the book: An acre a minute, $5.
    Let me know if that's too low, or too high.

    That really isn't bad.
