    I am going to be picking up another mower in the next couple of weeks and have it narrowed down to a 34hp kohler or a 36 hp vanguard. They will be on a 72" mower that will be used commercially. I have had very good luck with kohlers in the past but have never had a vanguard. Is there anyone who has used both, which did you like better, and why?
    Thanks in advance for the thoughts.

    I think you answered your own question. Go with what you know and don't listen to someone on the net.

    Flip a coin, depends on if it was made on a monday/friday or the rest of the week.

    I'd lean towards the Kohler because thats what I know.
    If you have good dealer support and the price was better for the Briggs you might consider that.
