    I am caught between a Ferris 21 hp kaw 48" rider or a Scag 24 hp briggs 48" rider. I like both mowers, but I've only used kawasaki engines in the past. Any help on the briggs would be great. Thanks

    24 intek briggs i am guessing,i do not think a top name would put a bad or cheap moter on there equipment,i am skeptical myself over the intek we are sold on the vanguards you know 24 horses is a lot and the price is cheaper i am guessing,local dealer here has sold 3 of the inteks on scags this week.

    your right, also there is a 2 year warranty on the engine as well. Someone also said it is not only the hp, but the torque:confused:

    That is common with vanguards getting the valves adjusted.
