    check the spect the extra torque from the Kohler will be very helpful if you are mulching

    I know a few guys with the 19 kaw. Don't know anybody with kohlers. But on this one since I don't have to make the decision I would say if your mulching alot there is no substitute for horsepower. The 48" Cub and kohler would seem to be a good combination. I would also look at the 52" 26 liquid cooled Wildcat. This is an awsome combination!
