    I have a FH680D (23hp air cooled) on my Exmark Lazer 60"

    2 words:

    LOVE IT!

    Once I figure out how to add dual-filtration and oil/hydro coolers on it I'll be set. :D

    I have 14hp and 17hp Kawasaki v-twins on both my Ferris dual drives and I love them. They start easy run smooth and alot quieter than any Kohler I have or have had. Some people complain about parts availability, but as long as you have a Kaw dealer around you, there's no problem. But since they're so reliable, all I've ever had to replace on one was a recoil. Also the oil filter and most air filters are universal through out the Kawasaki line.

    We have a 15 and a 19 Kawasaki. The 15 (recoil start) is a little hard to start, but it runs great, and the 19 is great

    I talked with the head guys from Kawi America several months ago about some concerns. They assured me they knew that had part distribution problems and were working them out. Since then, parts have seemed to be more avaliable in my area. I guess they really are working to get better. I've been pretty happy with my kawis.

    Sorry. It should read: "You hab de kowi-v-twen?"

    I'm looking at the husqvarna 13hp v-36". It has the new ets(easy control system) and is 2499$. Other choices in town are toro(no to t-bar) scag(i'm sure it is more bux) JD:)laugh: ) or Club cadet:)p :laugh: :pumpkin: )

    The husqie looks to me to be a very good product this season. I would like the 42" hydro but lawn sizes are small here.

    Gear on the 36". Wish they had a floating deck hydro.
