    This year has been alot of word of mouth and hitting the pavement putting bids out for commercials. I also picked up 3 on one road while doing a cleanup, one of the houses drove by my truck and wrote my number down then told his neighbors who all signed with me as well.

    I know my 08 has the 29 kawi and it does ok with fuel, And i have to disagree about the stripe kit, They don't stripe half as good without them.

    That is just a little over a half a gallon per hour. My dealer told me I should be getting around 1.5 to 1.7 gallons for a hour. I dont know how accurate this is but 2.5 for a hour is rediculous. I have been real happy with the kawi on my other mower is why I opted for the kawi but who knows maybe it will get better other than that the mower is great.

    I dont know either but I filled up when I finished today and I am gonna keep a eye on the hour meter and see how it works. My lesco has a 23 kawi and I know the extra 6 hp will make a difference but it should be better than this maybe like earlier posted it will get better at aroud 75 hours so far I am at 11 hours. Thanks for your help. I was mowing about 5 acres today when it seemed to be sucking fuel so bad.
