    The net hp for the Briggs must be kept to within 15% of its listed gross, meaning it will be in no less than a 25.5 hp range based on their rating system. The Kawasaki is rated to within 2% of it listed gross meaning it be within 1/2 hp of its rated 24. The Briggs will probably be more powerful, but may not hold up as well as the Kawasaki.

    I started selling the Cyclonic briggs this year and I'm moving a good handful of them. I was like everyone else, kinda sketchy....but after going to all the dealer meetings this past winter, I ordered some ferris models with the Cyclonic. There is a bunch of enhancements over the original pro series which it is based off of. But still for full time commercial work I would personally choose the Kawi. But the cyclonic does have a full 3 year warranty just like the kawi and the vangaurd. So at least they are standing behind the new cyclonics
