You don't need to believe anything on the internet, I can tell you for a fact what they told you is incorrect. I received a check for $300 for about 5 mins. work filling out the requested information on their website. I was sent the lawsuit information by mail, and not only were the engine manufacturers named in the class action, the mower manufacturers were as well. Evidently you've never bought a mower within their listed time-frame, if so you would have received the same information and would be somewhat more knowledgeable on the subject in question. The 32 Vanguard will feel as powerful as your Kawasaki, and I've compared them side by side in many different conditions.
