    I'm either getting an ISX800 or an ISX2200, 61". If the ride is half as good on the 8 as the 22 then I'm saving $2k. I asked the dealer to bring me an 800 with the biggest motor he has and that I wanted EFI. He said he's bringing out the carbureted 26 hp Vanguard 810 instead of the 27 hp Briggs...

    61” StanderZK has 2 options for engine, 27HP Kawasaki or 37HP EFI Briggs & Stratton. Has anyone run both and could tell me pros and cons to each? I’m looking to buy this month and I’m leaning towards the 27HP Kawasaki because my StanderX has a Kawasaki engine and I’ve had no issues with it but...

    Z945M with Kohler 27 Hp EFI blows continuous blue smoke on startup and burning 1/2 qt every 20 hours. It has less than 100 hours on it. I am being told this is normal for Kohler motors and should have bought Kawasaki motor. Any ideas?

    I'm currently in the process of planning my initial equipment roster for a part-time solo lawn maintenance operation. Two of my primary goals are to streamline overhead and operational costs as far as possible via equipment efficiencies and to operate my business in an eco-friendly fashion...

    I'm currently looking at 2019 scag and bad boy ztr's. I have mowed with the bad boy rogue 61" 999cc with the Kawasaki fx1000v and loved it. I know bad boys have not been comparable in previous years but also know that (new to this year) they now offer a similar sloped deck like the velocity plus...

    Having on-going issues with my Scag Cheetah with the Kohler ECV940 efi motor. Mower hasn't felt right or been performing the way it should all season long. At idle or without the blades engaged everything seems to be fine. Once I engage the blades I feel like the blade speed isn't what it should...

    I bought 3 snapper 52" walks summer of 2015. All have the Vanguard 28hp EFI engine. All have been bullet proof...until now. I have one that will start after some trying, run for 10 or 15 seconds, and then quit. Red light on the operator panel flashes. Anyone had this happen, and if so, what was...

    Hi there. So last fall I bought a 2016 John Deere z925m flex fuel efi (25hp Kohler) Myself and my employees love the mower; how good it is on hills, the comfort, and the mulch on demand feature around gardens and what not. Unfortunately, the Kohler engine seems like junk so far. Every 4-5 starts...

    Looking to get some feedback and hopefully decide which mower to pick up. I am not interested in a rider simply because We will not be mowing anything over an acre (rare around these parts unless a large complex). My company has mainly focused on landscape & irrigation design and installation...
