    I had my mind set on a 19 Kaw Tiger Cub but I have found a much better deal on a 20hp Kohler Cub (both have 48 inch decks). How are the Kohlers compared to the Kaws? Good, bad, indifferent?

    I have a 15 hp kohler on my toro 36 wb. I have a 19hp kawasaki on my toro 52. Although the kohler has performed well, I am already starting to use quite a bit of oil. I have heard the kohlers are prone to certain problems such as head gasket probs and carb probs....my opinion, go with the kawasaki

    We have two Tiger Cubs, both have 19 Kawasaki's. I would get the kawasaki because from my experience in thick grass the Kawasaki has more torque.
