Enough?

Saturday I am going to a local Exmark Dealer, and getting a Lazer HP 48inch 20hp kohler. My question is is this engine strong enough to cut thick grass, how does it cut at top speeds? I dont want to have to go 2 mph, to cut thick grass!

Please help me out in making a decision!

Thanks, Ryan

I'm not sure if your getting a walk behind or a rider. I had a walk behind 48 with a 15 horse Kohler, and it was great. I had plenty of power. However I have a 17 horse Kawaski on my 54 walk behind, and its not enough power.

I have a 25 horse on my 62 inch rider and it seems to be fine.

my 2 cents

I'd say get as many horses as you can. I've got a 17kaw on a 48 hydro walk (exmark) Gator blades too. Works weel enough, still have to double cut and blow chunks in the spring on a weekly schedule.

That is a good mower. If I could get it in the kawi I would, but it will serve you well even with the kohler.

How much smaller is the Hp from the Full Size Lazer?

If you are looking at a full size lazer the smallest deck you can get
is 52". If you are looking at the 48" deck, you will have to go with
the lazer hp. I have a 48" lazer z hp and love it. You may want to
consider the 21hp Kawi. engine. I don't have trouble with speed
just the usual clumps and double cutting in the spring, but I get
that with my full size 60" 27hp too.
Anyway, 48" lhp is a great mower, should serve you well
