Dustin or Terry, I went and saw my eXmark dealer today and had a great conversation with him about purchasing a new machine come spring. In talking with him, he said taht the new 28 hp engine really sint a 28, it's just a 26 that has always put out 28hp, and it will just be rebadged. Is this true? Or does the 26 really put out 28, and the new 28 will put out say, 31 hp? Could you shed some light on this, as I'd rather get the bigger of the two engines, but want to know exactly what to tell my dealer I want. Thank you! Ben P.S. My dealer is Gaffer's Small Engine in Mankato, Minnesota...I saw some awards on their wall presented by you guys, so hats off to them!
