Just as the title states, between the 30hp, 725cc Kohler and a 26hp liquid cooled 675cc Kawasaki, which would you choose and why. The Kohler has 49.9 ft/lbs of torque at 2600rpm and is on the pup. The Kawasaki has 42.22 ft/lbs at 2400rpm and is on the lightning. Pros vs Cons of each. These are on bad boy's pup and lightning mowers.
