    I can not decide upon which engine to put on either a Dixie Chopper or Exmark ZTR, both 60". I am not too concerned with price, so it is not a factor in my choice. Both dealers are about 30 mins away, so that being equal, which one would you choose

    Dixie Chopper
    XW2400 24hp honda
    XW2600 26hp kohler EFI

    Exmark
    Lazer with a 25 Kawi
    Lazer EPS with a 26 EFI

    If you would, tell me why you would get a certain one

    Thanks

    Its not one of your choices, but look at a 27hp water cooled kaw on a lazer.

    the more hp the better, also just cause the dealers are same distance, doesnt mean same quality.

    i have a 60 inch lazer with the 25 hp kohler and love it. I dont think you can go wrong either way from what i hear about both those machines.

    Think hard about those EFI engines. Fuel costs will undoubtedly climb and one of those could save some serious bank.
