    That is a nice deal. If you have a lot of small residential yards and are bagging them then jump on it. My 26hp EFI has a ton of HP and I would recommend it but you have a good deal on your hands. I say jump on the 20 hp if its not going to be your main mower. If its going to be the main one you use get the 26efi. Remember that having to much power is better than having to little.

    oh the 20 hp ones are only like $600-$900 cheaper so you are lookin at about $9700 new on a 20hp

    Gas consumption is a little over 1 gal per hour on the 20hp and right at 3/4 gal an hour on the 26EFI. The low hour deal on the 20hp sounds pretty good though if you are looking to mow/bag.
